I never knew my parents

i really never knew my parents when
i suspected that i did.
Now their coffins roll away
parting traffic on this day.
i can only estimate this loss
and try to understand the
darkness inside all of us.
Their darkness is all i ever knew.
while i wait my turn.
Their darkness passed on and grew.
