This is for You

from by Gabriel Oliveira



this is for you
because I don't know where you are anymore
last I heard your daughter was sick
there was a lot of dust in the house

I loved the food you'd make
I knew the light on your street well
it makes me want to cry to imagine-
see, back inland aunt died with a lone heart
and brother fell into a pit just days before
still you and her know even darker slides
I don't hold you, yet we all have to
now we all stand dusty and blind
"something about closing doors"
it's all the same until it's not

This is for You
because I don't know where you are
my best echoes spin through sound
It's what I can give of what I surround
"the real care stems from her sca-a-ar"
the angel is there, and so is the hound
dragging hope to headphone lives

it’s just an upward rectangle
they looking at, praying at
