I Lost You In The Skies (Vignette)
I see birds flying west as I look at the gray morning skies.
In my hand, I hold a glass of cold water.
In my heart, I contain the pain of letting you go.
I drink the cold water and along swallow the lump in my throat knowing that I’m losing my true love forever.
The cold water numbs my heart.
I look at the skies one more time to see the birds, or perhaps it is you I want back. But the birds are gone. I see only empty skies, like the void you left in my heart when we bade goodbye.
This is how I’m going to hold this day in my thoughts.
I lost you in the skies.
