Bonnie Carver A 5th Memorial Poem for Jack on January 23, 2017 February 22, 2017
 
  I Miss Your Voice

A test today to hear
The silence singing in my ears.
Four years it stings
For years we spoke each day
Fourteen hundred ninety-one.
As I grow graduslly more deaf
Yet still I hear
Not with my ears
But with my heart.

  Timed Tears

I beg that time
May heal me never
Erasing with its antiseptic balm
My thoughts of you.

This wound is my companion
Now that you are gone
I long for nights of pain
When tears are proof
You lived.
The liquid manifestated truth
Made plain
That you were here
And I was loved.

Death Days

A Day of death,
Not ulike one of birth,
If left untended by
An interferring hand,
Comes,
Causing us to gasp
For breath
And grasp
For moments lost, compressed.

We keen
Despite illusions made
To trick ourselves
with some demonic
Slight of hand,
Now comandeer
Reclaim the  power
never ceded,
never really ours to feign,
On this celestial plane.

Jack introduced me to my first fine wine at Mr. Stox in Los Alamitos. It was a Chateau Lafite Rothschild and cost $100.  I'd never had a wine that wasn't a chablis, burgundy, or blush and wasn't in a "jug".  One of many many good memories when JPI was THE FORCE in equestrian filmmaking and eventually TV production.  Definitely the Good Ole Days!  Bonnie, we miss you guys!

I Find You

I'm sure they thought
They'd taken you away.
That was their only task
That day, in fact.
And yet they failed
so gloriously well.
Then others took
their well-intentioned leave
Leaving me to walk these rooms alone.

I find you everywhere.

A paperback sits tented to the place
Last page, last word you read.
Coffee cold and crusting in your cup
awaits its rinsing in the sink.
A paper creased just so
to frame the crossword
DOWN still blank
and tiny snips of beard I trimmed
collecting in a bowl.
Your clothes with mine
atangle on the bedroom floor
hide finger-smeared eyeglasses where they fell.
Still warm,
the pillow molded to the echo of your head
and sheets shout out sweet scent.
And then,
I hear
your chocolate-colored broadcast voice
instructing calling guests:
"You've reached the Carvers.
Leave your message at the beep."

I find your everywhere.

Jack & I played a lot of tennis and bridge together.  I like to think I helped him toward his Life Master.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
Spencer Nelson Mr. February 20, 2013
 
I worked for Jack in the early seventies. He gave me considerable leeway creativiely as I helped him produce those award-winning commercials. He was a decent man, patient with my outsized ego and not as upset as he should have been when I walked away with some business that should have been his. I didn't know he lived in Broomfield, where I live. I wish I did know...I would have suggested a cup of coffee. The world quite simply needs more like him, especially in the world of advertising.

Our deepest sympathy goes to Jack and the wonderful family that he has.   We will never forget the 2006 Christmas
holidays that we spend with Jack and the Carver family.   Even though we only spend a couple of weeks together the
memories will allways be charished.
