SHIFT

 

It seems that today

In that shift of sunlight

Has made you a bit closer to me.

 

I know you are now

Gone to your new

Life across from ours

But still the pain

Can not be resolved in our hearts.

 

I just know you are

There eavesdropping,

It seems as if that

Sunlight today marks

Our boundary with your world.

 

For there you will

Be waiting when

Time is right, I know.

 

As our sun goes down at close of day,

You’re brightness will

Still be there in our hearts.
