  • The journey is over for now
    I come home and she is not there.
    Ending this way?
    My hope was something else.
    Sadness fills the apartment
    The stillness of what we once shared
    I will leave
    The quarters where I thought I'd grow old.
    Now I have to let go.
    Allow for what was there to fade away.
    Memories as precious gems.
    Close to my heart.
    The end
    And a new beginning
    But not loneliness.
    Home is something else.
