A Toast

Some have meat and have no teeth
Some have teeth but have no meat
But we have teeth and we have meat
So let us all sit down and eat!

(Accompanied by uproarious laughter, always)

My grandfather taught me this little rhyme, in his thick Jamaican accent with perfect diction, oh how we laughed.

Gnawing at your heart
Rolling down your cheeks are tears
Impossible to imagine the pain that is
Eating you up inside until the intensity of the
Feelings fade ~ but the memory of you never will.

For all of us, at some time, have loved and lost...the love is eternal.
