One life was not enough
for the love I had for you.
The warmth of your body
still heats our bed like the
glowing embers that remain
after a fire.
It continues to feel like you
died yesterday as I can’t stop
crying for you, who I miss like
a starving man hungers for food.
I reach for you every morning,
dream of you every night,
but I’m never lonely as long as
your phantom presence clings
to my heart.
