DecPoWriMo 13

I remember waiting 
to press record
as soon as they appeared
on the TV show

wishing I could go
to the concert
listening to the cassette
as a replacement

now three of four gone
in less than ten years
only one remains
a believer of daydreams

the morning she died
and I did not know
I wanted to watch the show
all day long with her

now they are with her
to sing along with
and I don’t know if I’ve
ever loved any other

half as much as I do
now this light’s gone under
