The Tears of Parting

You said goodbye
The final cut
When will I see your face again?
The train awaits
The boat tugs at her moorings
The plane taxies away
Some vessel to carry you to the stars

You are going.
For what did we share
this brief sojourn together?
To end by crying
at life’s cruelty
as it rents us apart?
The veil descends.

Whether close or near
You are in my heart
A pain, a scar that will not heal
A dry chasm
That nothing can fill
Until we rejoice together
Loving, amongst the stars.
