Into the Universe.

That telescope
waiting in the living room
the lens loose and grimy
the connections flimsy
and hesitant
told me 
that soon
you'd have it all down on the ground
in little pieces
a puzzle
you craved to
your goal
look at the universe
as your playground
not that you had more time
or more skills
or more dedication.
You just enjoyed 
the beauty
present in
intricate puzzles.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your is so touching and my heart is heavy for you with the loss of your child.
