Nearing Time to Say Goodbye Again


Winter came, and I clung to you. Hid under your blankets like a child as the chill dwarfed me, brought me to need you.
I was victimized by the cold you loved and grew to know, to love you through winter’s icy embrace.
I called your name in vain as the news that tortured my ears, my eyes- when every orifice flooded with pain, I was forced to miss you.
You died alone but not lonely
for my heart went with you as it had held its place all the way-
needing you, loving you, missing you.
But by your absence, I found a reason, the need to stay.
