DEFYING ABSENCE


 By Roland E. Williams

 

I wonder how many more minutes
Of missing you so
Will continue to feel like years?

How many falling stars will appear
And light up the skies
While my eyes keep drowning in tears?

How many times will my eyes have blinked
When the tears have dried
To be blinded by tears again?

How many sorrowful heartbeats skipped
Intermittently
Causing my chest to scream in pain?

How many leaves will fall from the trees
Recycled to Earth
As I enduringly want you?

How many more poems will I create
As the reflection
That you endlessly love me too?

Can I count the number of sunsets
I will not enjoy
Because dusk envelopes my heart?

The many clouds turned to elephants
To then dissipate
While with you my dreams end and start?
