SistersI looked for you today, butSisters by waiting4william
I couldn’t find you anywhere.
In fact, your scent is fading,
and your bed has moved. But I
remember you were just here,
I checked outside, but you
Must have just left.
I asked ‘Ball’ where you were,
I looked under every cover,
Followed every faint trace.
I miss you, but you have to be here someplace,
I can still feel you.
Valentine's DayI stand on the porch, smoking…Valentine's Day by waiting4william
Trying to get my eyes to stop leaking
but they won’t.
It’s snowing, light fluffy flakes
on a breeze.
Someone down the street is blowing snow,
but still it seems so quiet outside.
The wind catches the weight of a wind chime,
mournful tones like an ocean buoy.
Softly it clangs, a requiem for my heart.
It is cold, it is Valentine’s Day, and it is the first one without you.
