Tell me love,
Where are you these days?
Do you not yearn to meet me,
As I do, you?

There are two of I,
the one that loves
and the other desires.
And now I wonder
if it is time,
I end the latter?
Maybe you already have
put yours to rest,
and just haven’t
had the heart to let
me know of the passing.

If that were true,
fear not! for my
heart is stronger than
before and can take
a punch or two after
what I’ve been through
this past year without you.
