I usually manage to get through life
with few disasters or battles or fights;
but today I woke up and I knew – just knew
that today would be different. Because you
were gone – not to some distance place,
far away, where you'd have to stay
forever. No – it's just for a day
that you had to go just out of reach.

Only a few hours, and most spent asleep,
but the darkest hours I've seen; the coldest
night; the loneliest day. I'm not the boldest
person at the best of times – but today,
I'm lost.

So come home.

Quickly.
