Love Perseveres


knowing in loneliness

knowing in loving


She waits


balancing the distance

between nowhere and here


She waits


points on a map disappear as

time nullifies miles and minutes and minutia


she wages war against desperation

and wills the waves to stop rolling


and waits


standing alone as cold winds blow

she feels the warmth of Spring


even as the storm rages

she hears his voice




Until we meet again
