Constellation You

Crying to the Universe
Photo by Greg Rakozy on Unsplash

I will love you until the day I die

Is a promise, and yet a curse

For when I cannot connect with you

It upsets my universe.

The stars have become my frequent friends

As I stare out windows, dark

And wonder how you are, my dear

With pain around my heart.

In the night sky I clearly see

Our story shifted by view and time

The joys to share, the love we've missed,

Because contellations were out of line.

As I cry and speak out loud

Feeling small and wrong and lost

I say words for your happiness

And hope it's not a cost.

Mr. Rogers said it best,

It's you, about whom I care

Not the things around you

Or your ribbons or your hair.

The frame may be our history

Our shared love and time and genes

But, as the starry sky is wide,

I pray our tale exceeds.

About the author

Terry Roe

Some people paint, others dance, and happy people sing. Writing is the white space that allows me to color some moods, move some thoughts, and hum some tunes.
