Seeing Ruby

Ruby’s come back
In no time made small
To point to the incurable wound
At the heart of it all.
I thought I’d forgiven
And forgot to forget
The empty chair left abandoned
At the table I’d set.
For years I would sit
The long table placed two
To light a third candle
For the miracle of you.
I thought you were gone
So I set the space free
To watch you sit down
In the chair next to me.
Now we’ll ponder and muse
And I’ll delight in your smile
A cupped rose to your face
Signals my heart’s next trial.
