An Earthy Forest Green

Brown like beeswaxed oak.

If you'd had an accident, I would have noticed.

If you'd been unwell, I would have cared.

You were not invisible.

You were my everyday everything.

I needed you, always.

I still need you.

Just as you were.

Faults and all.


When I wake up, I look for your messages.

Wait for an absolution or resolution.

Wait for peace that will never come.

But know, you were never invisible.

Not so long as you had me.


Time means nothing.

No one knows what will be.

I'll always believe the best in you.

And I don't care what you had to do.

One day you'll come home.


Just know, you were never invisible.
