Parting

why
my love
must we face the
cruel agony of parting

why
my love
if we have always known
our paths run side by side
only
for a while

why
my love
if the day to
say goodbye
has always been
our destiny

and now you’re gone

no drum-roll
no majestic moment
just a shimmer of a smile
and now
my love
you’re gone

and your legacy feels
like a void
like I am left alone
and nothing can replace you

but slowly
my love
that void is being filled
with memories
with happiness
and I know
you’ve never left
