Giving up, and letting go
So close,
yet so far.
I didn’t think this all
would be so fast,
I didn’t think
that call
would be
our last.

Love, forever fleeing,
Slow your stride, and take a rest.
Lay down your head,
within their chests,
and be lulled
by their heart’s breath.

parting has never been such sorrow.

is this the end?

May the hearts be healed tomorrow.
