She died in November, 2016.
It is now January, 2023.
The Christmas lights she plugged in, in the living room,
Are still on--never touched.
So long a lifespan (for such lights)
Which she had decorated throughout the house.
The calendars she maintained, still hanging on November, 2016.
Some of her old meds still sit on the bedroom ironing board.
Her pendant collection, still on the wall hooks--some I made for her.
And, of course, many, many books amassed over her research years,
Mingled with my large collection--now all juxtaposed throughout the shelves.
My life has changed in the progress of aging and time passing,
But these all will remain for a time more,
Along with many other remnants of our past productive lives together.
