for Nana

I would have liked to have known you then
before you served in the war
when your parents were alive
before you        married
                            divorced
                            had kids
                                           watched one die.
I would have liked to have seen you
smile like this
more often
              and to hear you laugh.
Even though I can’t have any of this
or to ask about that time
              or anything,
having found this picture
              helps.
