Four Days with You
In those four days with you
I lived a year
No details, no consequence
I regained my real self
And in doing so took back my life.
What you gave me was love and meaning
Steeped in sensitivity and strength
Qualities re-founded, unearthed
How I wanted to leave,
To just go, to join you
Without regret or shame.
I could turn out the light,
Walk out the door
For I know I have never loved anyone, more
Yet I could not turn my back
On those I had created,
Who needed me.
You helped me to survive this path
I thank you for that.
For us, tomorrow will always be
Where life takes you away
In body and in soul
I have been adored.
I keep close every single thought
Of those days we spent together
Each one, two, three and four.
It's not the fear of the destination
But the impossibility of the journey.
