I miss her

I miss her

Tiny fingers

Curled around mine

And the sounds

Of her

Growing

And changing

As she

Expands

Into the world

That has been

Waiting

For her

To arrive.

Across the globe,

With her mother,

Visiting family

And a country

That is hers

By birth

And passport.

The distance

Has been

Surreal

And difficult

To adjust to-

Even technology

Has failed

To close the gap

And seal the wound

Caused by the miles.

In a few more

Weeks

I will

Hold her

And her mother

In my arms

Once more.

Until then

I continue

To look at her

Pictures

Again and again-

Sometimes

With a smile

And sometimes

With a tear.

Spitting truths

It never

Ceases

To amaze me

How people become experts

On everything

After a few drinks-

Spouting facts

And spitting

Truths

Through slurred

Speech,

Perched upon

Wobbly legs,

Or teetering

On bar stools.

Whispers of love eternal

Valentine’s Day

Alone

In a hotel-

Eating

Alone

And toasting no one.

No kisses,

No hugs,

No wishes

To be fulfilled

With arms wrapped around me

And whispers

Of love

Eternal.

another hotel bar

Another

Hotel bar

In

Another city,

Again.

Another

Beer,

Alone-

Again.

Away

From home

And family,

Again.

Observing

Humanity

And the animals

We are-

The beasts

Of habit

And ritual

We have become

Over millenia

Of living

And surviving-

Somehow.

The more

Difference,

The greater

The distance,

The less

Things change.
