Where Are You - Poem by sylvie 1943

I throw the curtains, greet the morn
The needle’s set to rain.
I smile and stretch and turn
And then, the feeling comes again.

I know you’re out there, feel your heat
The pressure of your hands
The kiss, caress, the loving
I just can’t understand.

Where did you go my sweetest one
The man I loved so dear
I’ve functioned as an empty shell
Many of these past years.

I see you daily but don’t touch
We speak but so polite
We smile and eat and sip our tea
We chatter, all so light.

I loved you once a strong true love
Uplifting, passion, pleasure
Now we are old and time has gone
All we have left is leisure.
