​I woke up this morning

To an uneasy reality

And I wondered

If I crossed your mind

I kept you in my thoughts

as I chugged along the long day

As I will

In the days to come.

I shudder at the thought of the impending nights

Even as the sun bemoaningly departs.

I know your love never leaves me

And that my heart is always full

And yet, 

Without your words

I am as empty as a blank page

Waiting to be scribbled upon
