You Will Be Missed – Written Saturday 28th June 2008 (Aged 33)

You Will Be Missed

i know that –
we were –
always one second –
from goodbye
a second –
from farewell
a moment –
from no more

just two people
with their backs to the door
i knew –
that something –
would have to give
that the land would change
it would have to shift
i never wanted this
you will be missed
