The Never Farewell
She lit a candle.
Read some words.
I listened as she grieved
Private moments shared,
That would never be again.
She spoke of travels
And slow kitchen dances.
Tears fell for moments lost to love
Because of marriages long dead
But still binding.
She wept for the husband of her heart.
Eulogized in her absence.
My heart mourned also
For never-love scribed in midnight dreams
For passionate yearning
And words that distance consumes.
What is a life that is ever denied
And love that sparkles like distant lightning?
So I tell you now
I love you.
With all that I am.
That is everything.
