I miss you in this world.
You’re gone
before my heart was ready.
(Though readiness was not
on the horizon.)

Thought you’d fill my eyes
forever,
never wanting to imagine
less,
and now I must confess
a gaping hole (the size of you)
cuts to my core.

I can’t ignore your needs,
your freedom.
No more torment.
Take sweet freedom and
be happy, funny, bright
insightful you.

I want you to.

I’ll simply do
what I must do
to make it through.
