The World's Cruel Joke

I looked for reasons

why

your smile disappeared--

your arms didn't reach for me

any longer

and I wonder if I'm being selfish loving you so much

that when a day goes by and

I look in the mirror

and don't see you sparkling in my eyes

that the world may have played 

some cruel joke

putting you here with me.
