In those last few years
he needed me
like stepping stones need solid ground
the sunset
a horizon
to mark the fading day

And so we found a new
kind of love
to replace
a love that was
never really there

No arms wide open,
or curious conversations
no belly laughs on…

There was something that I asked you: to empty the dishwasher please, to clean up your bedroom, to pack up for your dad’s, to get your stuff organized for your trip.

Do you have? Do you need? Did you find? Made a list? Where’s your suitcase? Got your ticket?
