Absence - Poem by Regis Auffray

Absence (Haiku String)

When the winter wind
Stirs through the dark barren trees
It whispers of you

I can barely breathe
When your picture comes upon
The screen of my mind

Unavoidably
When someone mentions your name
I lose a heartbeat

I can scarce believe
How empty my world appears
Without you in it

In another realm
In dreams when I speak with you
You give me purpose

Now in the darkness
It is easy to fathom
The light that you shined

In humility
I admit my lack of strength
Without your presence

It's hard not to fall
In the void you left behind
When you had to leave

There is not a time
When I do not think of you
Know this is the truth

My friend I miss you
There is emptiness within
Each passing moment

The absence of you
Is a constant throbbing ache
Deep within my soul

I shall not be healed
Until we can meet again
Our friendship confirmed
