The Parting

The Parting

 

My deepest sorrow was letting you go.
I watched you turn and leave.
I didn’t try to stop you.
I never spoke to sway your mind.
I remember your touch, 

The heat of your body,
The warmth that made me feel alive,
Your eyes so penetrating, 

That could see into my soul.
No secrets could I keep from you.
I used to tremble when you were near.
I would read your thoughts before you spoke.
I could sense your presence in the middle of the night.
My heart would beat with desire for you.
Now the emptiness chills my being
Like everlasting winter, 

  feel barren and frozen.
