Ode to Sherman

I found a note the other day

Among my children's papers

scribbled drawings

and photographs

It said, "I loved you Sherman, I missed you Sherman"

From Tim.

This, amid little notes from Dandy

saying "I love you Mommy" with pink hearts and smiley faces.

And cards from Vince. "For my Mom. Love Vincente."

"I loved you Sherman" is all there is from Tim.

His only proclamation of love

was written to a dead hermit crab.
