The Sunshine Has Escaped – Written Friday 6th January 2012 (Aged 36)

The Sunshine Has Escaped

the closeness of others
lights candles
that i thought were not lit
the sunshine may have escaped
but when we are at home
i fall into your arms
i want you and i need you
the strangeness of these times
holds us,
but does not deny us
it just constantly tries us
i do ask,
when does the pain stop
but i know that is a reference
a reflection, of the love i had
and still have
