I tried to reach you tonight
but you are probably already curled up with a book
or doing some other winding down from the day activity.
I heard this song today and was taken back to you
the sadness seeped out from my heart
which had been carefully locked with a promise
that this would be best
best for my ever so fragile health
which could not bare to acknowledge the grief and loss
of so many dreams.
The tears came
leaving salty trails
down my cheeks.
