The sun rises on another day:
One more since you went away.
Red and hazy in a pink sky
Match my eyes the day we said goodbye.
Rooftops glisten in the half light
As they shake off the shadows of the night.
Not much to see, the scene always the same,
Just another day, with a different name.
I wonder if ever you’ll return to me,
Or if this is the world I shall forever see.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Such heartbreak, Di. Lovely, though sad.

    Deeply reflective. Nicely done.
