what’s left

you tossed back
your long hair
straightened
your shoulders
and said
later
what’s left is
your scent
lingering
in the air
your smile
etched
in my mind
your promise
engraved
on my heart

 

 

echoes

there’s rain rain
falling falling
there’s chill chill
in air in air
there’s coffee coffee
soothing soothing
in darkness darkness
this morning morning
another day day
breaking breaking
another year year
approaches approaches
and time time
echoes echoes
here here
