Never to return

The days pass suddenly
then the weeks
then it’s been months

and there’s no way to take the time back,
no way to say

I meant
to be there,
I was there,
in spirit though
not in presence,
I was there,
in some way,

Didn’t you
feel me

as I
have been?

And the days continue to pass
the heat comes and goes
so does the cold

and there we go.
