roar

by m. e. roach

 

you stood so close

you could have touched his mane

felt his warm breath

whispered his Name

 

you saw the table crack

saw death fade away

saw him rise

and felt the ground shake with consuming love

 

you saw this, heard this, felt this,

knew this.

 

and you cannot tell me it is a dream-

no, you will know better than most-

for in the pain of infinite loss

you will hear the Lion’s roar.
