Lonely

Lonely

Fading sunlight
glowing on cool sand
A glistening ocean
reflecting light on
plumage of seagulls
Dramatic silver, against
the grey sky of dusk


Walking slowly
along the shore
thoughts of you
filling my head
Even though apart
the link between us
strengthened
by distance


Connected spiritually
but aching
for your presence
to fill the void
in my heart and
take comfort
from your touch

    My hubby used to travel out of the country… it was hard.
    Now he’s here 24/7 working from home. Not quite but a taste of what it will be like when he retires… πŸ˜€
