You'll Carry Your Pink Parasol In Heaven

you'll carry your pink parasol in Heaven
I whispered to the child
that used to be you

from far away
because I had to;
thinking of other days

when we would play
as if Eternity were
already ours

in all the prismed hours

and you with your longing
for kingdoms of the purely pink and red;
piano music

in the same key,
giftwrapped, cherry on top, please.
