I need direction, I need light, I need warmth, I need you. 
From you I found all this. Yet, is time to look hard for direction 
for light, for warmth, 

To allow memories of you guide. For now, it is just me and yet, 
I am no longer so frightened of that. For you, heart and soul, more,
left me well

Seated  quietly  on your bench under the large pine,
The sun settles in front of me.  Evening is cool and soft. 
I miss you. 

Four times now I have not had you near for this
A date you favored. The sun sinks red gold and
I miss you

Einstein spoke of the solitude painful in youth but 
delicious in age. Painful in loss, appreciated in time,
I miss you.

A prayer: May your small traditions bring comfort. 
May the days, the evening be soft and warming to you, 
May the grief 

You know be by your side as a guest, not so much welcomed, 
But acknowledged for the manners it may have 
Hopefully, finally, developed.

In the glow of a single flickering flame, 
how a bit of comfort comes, Like the single breath 
of a moment, 

how it allows the hour to come,
How we allow memory combined with love lost 
to refuge come.

In the ever hours I am now alone as never I knew alone.
In these ever hours I miss the physical of you, just, just
I miss you.

In these ever hours that meld loss and pain and future,
These ever hours that last forever and flash a second gone
I miss you.

In these ever hours where the shelter is thin at best,
I wish, ever so wish and yearn and hopefully strive on, 
Still missing you.

A candle lit for my Dear, near to my heart
A candle lit for those also who hurt 
from being apart

A candle lit for all walking this path 
wondering how, how, how does 
life again start.
