I am witness

to a life lived nobly

courage that most of us can never know

doing what had to be done

memories archived

never forgotten in my heart

never shared, carefully written

alone in leather jackets

time will brittle and erase the ink


a life of subterfuge




always there

always planning

in denial

in distress




the sun refuses to shine today

is this the day my love?


breathing stops

sadness fills the air

birds no longer chirp

the world mourns


I feel you leaving me
