Memorial Service

this weather turns against itself
thinking that spring denies its place
it returns to winter’s cold
but the sun knows better, changes
slant and pushes through  
opens to solace and warmth—
so too at yesterday’s service
for a young man whose life ended
too soon and too tragically
people spoke of his goodness,
of conversations, of his love 
for his daughter, of cooking pizza
from scratch with neighborhood children—
as each one spoke 
light was added to the darkness
