Wishing You Were Near


 Wishing You Were Near

By Cleve Sylcox

I watched the day break,
With rain dripping down,
Night was lonely,
Without you around.

I made coffee,
And walked our dog,
Tried to pretend,
But it was all a fog.

You left,
In a hurried haste.
Couldn’t wait to leave,
Now I’m alone, a waste.

I hate these moments,
Yet it is here,
Candles burn brightly,
Wishing you were near.
