Thinking about not having Kihei in my life


Every night

Snuggled against me

Kihei's soft snores

Are comforting

But my presence

Comforts her, too

How will I face

Her not being there

Every morning

To reassure me

That getting up

Is worth it?


Perhaps it's better

For her

That she leaves me first

Not the other way around

Either way

I think about the imminent heartache

Every day
