It is a deep ache

Within my soul

That nothing

Absolutely nothing

Can cure.

But you.


A sudden rush

To find something

That can fill a hole

You leave behind,

Along with the tender hand

Reassuring lips

That tell me

Everything is fine.


The beautiful feeling

Of knowing for certain

How loved I am

Every single time

I’m in your arms.


I miss every word

Every breath

Every touch

Every moment

You aren’t with me.


For Jack.
