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.
