A Simple Longing

Quietly, I sit

and wait

to hear

the words

no one dears to speak

Silent still

I wait

for my heart

to hear

as if to gain

some insight

No one can say

what I need

to hear

Because the one

whom I need

to hear

the words

from is

no longer here

Gone and missed

my heart


the love we


is only between


No one can


No one can


For this love

is gone

and never


A smile

is a reminder

of those days

long since


A stroke

of the pen

A brush

of some paint

Pictures and words

are just moments

we shared

Never to be replaced

A Simple Longing
