Today is...

                     

the long slow ache

of missing someone you love

and knowing

there is no way

to retrace your steps...

 

of standing in small

empty spaces

surrounded by aloneness...

 

It's trying to look ahead

and knowing the future has passed,

 

it's searching for strength

to move forward

when you want to run back,

 

it's knowing you can only go on

and wondering how.
