WHILE YOU WERE AWAY

WHILE YOU WERE AWAY

While you were away
My body yearned to feel your touch again
My heart ached as the memories slowly began to fade
I wondered if you would ever return.

While you were away
I dreamt of when I would see you again,
as I snuggled up to an empty bed
And under the dimming stars,
a million wishes made and waned
Waiting for dawn, the cycle to repeat.

While you were away
I pieced up the pieces of what remained
With bloodstained hands, I felt each cut
With “you” gone I might not be “full”
Slowly I learned, I still could fill up
With staggering steps, I filled up my smile.

While you were away
No longer wandering
I stopped to wonder,
letting my head hang back to see the cloud
With drapes of sunlight and love for me
I began to breathe.
