One More Day

And even as the sun

Bears down on my

Winter white shoulders

Heavy with fatigue
I wonder

Is there sun

Where you are

Does it warm your skin
If I turn my face

To the sun

Close my eyes

I can pretend

It’s warmth

Is your fingers

Tracing the lines

On my face
Smoothing

The worry away

With your light touch

Your soft kisses
And the fearful beat

Of my callow heart

Stills

My breath stops
And your love

And her love

Whisper words

Of courage

Of compassion

Of hope

Of faith
And I believe

I might just

Make it

Through

One more day
