Like an untethered

Boat that has

Drifted out to

Sea with the

Tides of day

You’re now hundreds

Of miles away

Far off shore

A late night

Snowfall has blanketed

Us and I

Awake to the

Chill of distance

I do understand

Yet wished you’d

Say that it

Is no longer

I but anyone

The easiest thing

To become is

Lovers the hardest

Is friends post

The transition lies

In truth courage

And trust the

Heart knows what

The mind cannot

I shall leave

You alone the

Same way that

We stumbled across

Each other before
