Together Again

By George Karnikis

The crowd has gone.
He smiles from the picture.
Every now and then a sympathy card.
Slower pace, life at a crossroad.
Fresh flowers on the table—unknown sender.
Curtains closed, candle flickers friendly light.
“Supper is special, your favorite meal.”
“You look handsome tonight.”
“You look beautiful.”
