The time spreads before me,
shining and restless.
I count the days left in my head,
my smile widening as I think of the plans I’ve made.
Will she be everything I anticipate,
that my soul hungers for?
I think she will.
She waits for me,
eager to embrace me once again.
It’s been too long since I’ve felt her touch,
heard her voice,
and been reduced to silence by her beauty.
Each day will be rendered with a luster
I cannot find elsewhere
and which I will carry with me when I leave,
leaving a part of myself
on her shores.
