When I look up
and I see you are not there
it hurts more than when
George pinches my arm
turning my skin red and
puffy, like sunburn.

Do you remember?
That glassy night in the field so
green, even in the dark it shone
and the stars, oh yes, the stars,
millions, millions, filled the skies and our eyes
Two together, one hand

When I see your empty chair
by the door
my heart breaks
but my eyes see you
