Last Night


I am finally at peace with the way it has to be.
I made this all harder than necessary
and was too stubborn, too scared to see
that what you meant was not for eternity.
But the look in your eyes, your tears
your open expression of emotion
was what I needed to see to believe,
you made your choice not to break me
but to protect and spare us both the hurt.
You said it many times, but between
my fear, the reality and urgency of your leaving
selfishly I went deaf, I went blind.
I fear not this distance anymore
we can survive it, we will conquer it,
of this certainty, this faith I am sure.
