Always With Me

Always With Me

by Lucy Hinton, February 07

Your sweet music echoes

through the burrow

of my body

Every chamber, hideaway

and vessel

knows the sound

of your name

Mourning your absence

with the yearning of

a thousand war wives

You are in another world now

across the river

we wept

with tears of love

I know not

if you even remember

my eyes or my kiss

my love

but I do know this

You are worth every gaping second

of longing

through my whole life to come

for that one single embrace

Worth the ache

of my searching breath

washing back-and-forth

through the emptiness

where you should be

You are beloved to me

most magic love

and I shall die

with your memory decorated

across my heart
