In the glistening of the rising sun, you pray he comes to you.
You close your eyes and try to feel him but sadness is not easy to penetrate.
You move within the home you created together and it echos with emptiness.
The dog lifts his head with each breeze begging for him to come through the door.
And your mind keeps taking you back to the moment when you had to let go.
He is all around you, you keep telling yourself, but it doesn’t heal the ache in your heart.
For just one more minute, one more conversation, you would give anything.
And you know, it’s worse at night, when you lay there… alone.
You reflect back on your life together and sleep won’t come.
And you pray and you pray that he comes to you.
When you open your eyes you don’t remember how or when you closed them.
But the clock says that is was only an hour ago.
And the darkness of the night echoes the sadness of this new normal.
As you wonder.. how will I ever go on?
And you roll over and hug the pillow and the tears flow, burning your eyes closed again.
Until your body stirs from the cool breeze as morning breaks.
And the sun glistens on the water once again, and you pray he comes to you.
Until he does..
