gone forever

if there are any heavens 
my mother will have one
 




g o n e   f o r e v e r

.












it will not be a pansy heaven 
nor a fragile heaven of lilies-of-the-valley 
but it will be a heaven of black-red roses

nothing with the face of a poet really 
which is a flower and not a face 
with hands which whisper 
this is my beloved

e e cummings
