If my other half died
I would scream out to the sky the loss of him
"Stop all the clocks" and insist the world
Pay it due attention

I  would put it on the television, his face
And his warm enormous hugs and
The smile he gave children
I would publicise his library

LISTEN TO WHAT YOU HAVE LOST 
I would shout
YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WE HAD THIS AND HE'S GONE 
Every day for a year

I would probably stand weeping in the street
Clutching passers by to tell them
That they have lost a treasure more great than they could ever know
With a megaphone

And my children would never
Never
Never
Never
Never
Never
Never doubt my love for him or for them
And I would not love them less
