A Cousin's Memory

Posted for: JAMES KEVIN O'LEARY:


Memorial

I will return there again
There?s an emptiness to fill
That cold black marble trail
The sound it makes so still

Like the church without its dome
Like the chapel without its bell
The quiet like a tomb
Men and tears they fell

I heard them tell its story
But no vision came to mind
Til I saw the shuffle, procession
Aging memory come to find

Little flowers little letters
Little signs of long ago
Little pictures little gestures
Collected pain of our lost soul

I cannot outgrow the Sixties
Can?t leave that time behind
What the world needed now was love
And we were by war defined

Who was he James Kevin?
Who can you be at nineteen years?
Shot and gone to heaven him
Us earth-bound to tears

We hardly knew ye, Johnny
We barely knew you James
We called you Cousin Kevin
You never came again

I want to go back down there
To the hush of that long grave
Beside the black marble trail
That carved our collective soul

~ R. Pacatte, 1997
In memory of James Kevin O?Leary
