Sorry about the neighbor, timmy. It is very sad.

Had a friend drown when I was 14 from a snowmobile going over thin ice.

This tore my guts out:

"Tears could be seen
from across the street."

I like the visual of "seen" not the audible of "heard."

LOVE the 3rd Stanza. Never heard the sorrow and remorse - but also the reality of survivorship - expressed so eloquently. Just beautiful.


best,
