    In your absence


    In your absence I’ve learned to sleep alone
    Invent new ways to keep warm through the night
    Like a ghost I haunt the rooms in our home
    Getting out of bed is another fight


    Without you life is simply not the same
    I can still smell your lingering cologne
    My purpose is like a flickering flame
    The loss I feel is clear down to the bone


    I’ve been told the deep pain lessens with time
    But romantic movies still make me cry
    We were married what now seems a lifetime
    I always thought I’d be the first to die


    Now I try to live one day at a time
    Life’s peaks and valleys I’m learning to climb

    Life is bounded by the threat of loss.
    Memory is at times a thread-bound curse. Screwing up hopes of peace.

              I have had deep losses in my life of people I love and I hope my poem reflects that.
