Separation

This shouldn’t be so hard anymore –
to say farewell and let you go…

But your journey has taken you away from me,
Leaving my small boat without its anchor to keep it close to shore

The distance creating
an ocean of miles between us,
Time keeping us out of sync

The phone line crackles,
and your voice faint
as the connection is lost-again

I should be strong by now-
so many other goodbyes,
but I hate the empty pillow
and the empty space in my heart
