Sweet Sighs, and Crushed Heart~

I thought of you last night,

One night among the thousands of nights that have passed since your hand last grasped mine,

As we lay next to each other in the dark.

I thought of your breath,

Of your arms braced,

As you raised yourself above me,

The passion in your eyes

A mere reflection of mine.

My dearest, my beloved, my knight, my hero, my lover, my husband,

I thought of you last night,

As I turned my body to face where you would be,

In another lifetime and if life were fair.

I turned to face you,

And my eyes lit not upon you,

But on a rectangular box covered in pictures of you when you were here,

and a triangle shape of red and white stripes and white stars. flag

My hand reached out to caress what is left of your physical form,

Fingers curled around those stripes and stars,

And I remembered your strong body raised over mine…

Your eyes…your breath…

Passion, and Love…

So much Love…
