Times like this – I miss you terribly
You’ve always been a part of me
and your absence, your distance... I feel it immensely
I ache and tremble because I fear
I can’t be strong without you
So, I close my eyes, take deep breaths and reach for you
In the silence and stillness, I feel you
Your love, comfort and reassurance are but a whisper –
faint but constant
It starts as a spark but it slowly grows to a bright ember
Not a flame that consumes
but an energy source warm and quiet
that nurtures and fills the gaps of my being
And then, I am whole again.
Until I open my eyes...
