Only if he is here

by Alethea Matthews

It’s another day. Another miserable day. The sun is here again, shining with all its strength. And I’m here still thinking of him. No day is a great day for me if he is not with me. My life has become that of a divorcee, a used cigarette, a read book, a watched movie. I have a broken heart. It split into two the day he left. Where is he, I don’t even know that. Maybe he is with some other girl or maybe he loves someone else but I don’t care. I’ll welcome him with all my strength, only if he is here. I can embrace him just like I did years before but only, only if he is here.
