I remind myself this won’t last - but how happy am I to see you.

you lean into me -  I know this will end.

 

the weight of your worries, I absorb as I always do. 

I cradle your tears - I will always be here for you, please stay. 

 

in the night I feel your warm embrace -  this won’t last. 

 

sunlight slowly seeps into the room - I pray for more time

I beg you to stay offering my warmth as protection from the frigid air.

 

I fail.

 

like clockwork, all I am left with is your fleeting warmth and sweet aroma

I cling to these for as long as I can - please come back soon.
