The coffee cup grows cold slowly in my hand
Whilst I, distracted, think on you.
Then the world surrounding me
And I lose myself in fading remembrances
My heart is warmed
And I am slowly lifted
Out of the darkness
That I have built around me
Since you left.
And when I turn back to reality
I know you are with me
And I am whole.
