With over a thousand miles between us,Tonight is the first night in an eternity
That I have spent without you.
I can still feel your breath as it
Leaves your peaceful chest, heavily.
I can still feel you fall into slumber,
Your body pulsing to keep you alive.
I can still feel your warmth that reaches
To my very center, my core.
I await the sight of your face, your touch,
Like a child lingers for her mother.
Memories resurface like blue-rayed visions
Whispering to me, consoling me,
All is not lost, nothing is gone away.
I hear your deep laughter,
As you softly speak to my heart
Reassuring me that This too shall pass,
And I await the day that it shall.
