MORNING WISH

You weren't there today.

I tried not being upset.

I had no choice but to make it through.

I missed you?

Did I – as I always do.

And you know I would be there.

My heart hurts so much when you're not there.

Why?

Don't tell me!

No!

Traitorous heart.

Untrustworthy heart.

Stop tearing me apart.

I need the way to peace – not to Hell.

Comfort seems so hard to find when I know you're not near.

I hold on – I breathe in.

And I just wait.
