Still Together 2

She looked for him
At the stone his name was on
But he wasn’t there

She sat in the seat where he prayed
To get a sense of him
But no words of his were heard

She stood where he stood
Watched the birds he watched
But they knew he was not there

Wherever she looked, he
Was not there, yet everywhere
She went he was.
In her head. In her need.

She carried him as part of her
He was, is, in her.
In her head.
In her being.

He was not anywhere
He was everywhere she was
Part of her,

Until she’s gone,
When they together will be found
In someone else’s heart.
Still together.
