First Light

(Published March 2021)

When the first sparks of light

Dance along the horizon

I know our time

Is coming to an end

A long night of negotiations

Have left our hearts waning

I let the early morning light

Dance along the cracks

So you can see me breaking

The tears spilling over our cheeks

A final goodbye

And cleansing beginning

As dawn stretches before us

Casting shadows on the moving boxes

We can see our story once more

And allowing an encore

Before you leave

The stage of our relationship

Leaving me alone

In the morning light

Listening to the echo of your name

In this empty apartment
