Tonight

Throughout this day I’ve thought

of his pain and passion

how often he would say

think five minutes in advance

find in your heart beauty

so those minutes pass

then exhale with dreams intact

listen to despair longer than that

you’ll cheat yourself of living.

Tonight five minutes has been too long

because I’m struggling to face life

without him
