PLEASE DON’T GO

In that moment

I am alone

Sometimes the love stays

Wraps me up

Like a warm blanket does

Consoles my soul

Like your strong arms can

But sometimes

I can feel the ice form

Before you’ve taken a step

Before you can turn away

Before you say goodbye

And it freezes everything

I can barely hear you say

I love you as you leave

Wait… please turn back

I forgot to memorize your face

To feel the lines that form

To feel the texture

To kiss you one last time

To hold on tight

To your warmth

As winter tries to settle

In that moment

Where I stand alone
