it’s quiet
the cat yawns 

we traveled together
to my favorite place
just last week
you fell for it too
morning fog, beautiful vistas

you’re off on another adventure
i have to go to work 

no matter how much time
we are given with each other—
i will always miss you
even when you’re only
gone ten minutes

we are under the same moon;
a familiar rain falls on your face

this isn’t the way i imagined
not better; not worse 
it’s just different
makes it more interesting
more comfortable to hold
