Give a little more with your grief.
Or perhaps step back and stay away.
This isn’t your moment you know,
you’re still standing and no one’s missing you.
But someone, someone somewhere is gone,
you don’t need to stay a word
like they don’t need to breathe.
It’s not enough, to say the usual.
It can be enough to say nothing.
