The day she left
I held my breath
And told myself she wasn’t really gone

Or else she was
It’s what she does
But then, she never leaves for very long

But winter came
And she was rain
And this was now a land that offered frost

I watched the snow
And held hello
Beneath the words my lips had never lost

The day I knew
Her loss was true
I told myself to hope that I was wrong

I know I’m not
And so, distraught,
I tell myself she’s not the sun, with tearful eyes that yearn to see the dawn
