47. That night

There was that day, that night, not so long ago,
When you held my hand just a little longer than usual,
And looked into my eyes.
I wonder what went through your mind that night.
You didn’t give me a chance to say goodbye.

Did you know I would never see your face again?
Did you know I would cry out for you to return?
Did you know I would never understand what made you leave?

You looked so happy.

Ten years have passed.
That night doesn’t seem so long ago.
I can almost hear you laughing,
Your voice so clear.

You looked so very happy.
You didn’t even say goodbye.

22. Over my shoulder


If I look back
over my shoulder,
Will I see you standing there
watching me walk away from you
for the very last time?

If I look back
over my shoulder,
Will I see your teardrops
falling as though your world has come
to its very end?

If I look back
over my shoulder,
Will I be sure I’m doing
the right thing
for the very first time?

3. Unanswered

Listen to my heart,

I speak to no one.

No one listens and the wounds run too deep.

You thought all I had to do was to believe.

It wasn’t enough, my love.

Disappointment has been friend.

Sorrow, my bedfellow.

My aching heart has surrendered after an eternity.

You never came back.

My soul’s only wish has died unanswered.
