I face the sun.
I am chilled but hopeful.
I know it’s coming.
I feel overwhelmed by the weight I carry. But I know it is not forever.
Someday we will gather.
Someday we will sit close. Drink tea maybe.
Someday the grass will once again tickle our toes.
I am cold now. Lonely too.
But I have a place for you. In my heart. That will never change.
We will be together again.
