Mina Harker


15 Years On


It's simple enough to say 'I miss you' and mean it.

To those around who remind me of you
I can say 'you're like him' or 'he's like you'
What of that? You never wanted to leave
Perhaps you never did as I stretch out my hand
in the middle of the night
and whisper so no one can hear
Are you here? Are you here?
Because God knows I miss you
And I don't believe in God.

To the treasured memories that slip through my fingers
Give it another 15 years
Then another, and another,
And I'm afraid that you'll leave me a second time.
Just as slowly, just as unwillingly.
Or maybe I'll see you in Heaven?
Because God knows I miss you
And I don't believe in God.
He knows that, too.
