Sherry, thank you for this beautiful article featuring my book After! I hope kids will pick it up and find something they like in it. Sometimes it helps if you know someone who is sick in your family, to read about how another kid coped with it.

Sunset Memory

The sunset spreads across the sky
orange and lavender ribbons splashed
like an abstract painting blending into
each other as if the paint were sliding
and being smoothed by Monet or Pizarro
and my thoughts turn to all of the
sunsets we saw together in the confines
of these states and abroad 
under skies over people not quite like us
for you it was only the sun setting and 
not the incarnation of impressionist painters
displaying their talents
you put your arm around me and we
watched as lavender, your favorite color,
slowly turned to darker purple and finally
became the black of the evening sky
your arm, the home of my sunshine,
warm around my back
the air cooling, but your body
near mine keeping away the chill
always my shelter 
and now as I 
watch this sunset with 
varicolored clouds filling 
the open space above me 
I have only your memory
and the enduring strength of your love
as I drive toward the western sky 
your presence still nestled warm 
in my heart
