Mourning Dove

He lands like a whisper outside my window

I know of his message…. love, peace hope

So long ago now there was a pair released at a wedding

So long ago now you have been gone

I remember to think of you when I hear a certain song


I find myself humming it later in the day

In the shower, or while I feed the dog

It feels good to have your memory beside me


Now if only these tree limbs could sing

If only this Dove could whistle like you.
