      ago my father’s
      last christmas my wife
      was 3 months pregnant
      my father died 2 months later
      my wife delivered a stillborn boy
      I’ve learned
      true beauty and happiness
      is never eternal
      joy can’t mask real loss and pain
      being in nature
      soothes me, relaxes me
      helps reconcile my reluctance
      to cry
      be still
      I’m still grateful for life’s joy and beauty
      I want to believe in myself and life
      I’m continually growling, I’m evergreen
