Daily missive breaks into Christmas for Wednesday the 26th of December. Boxing Day.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into Christmas for Wednesday the 26th of December.
Boxing Day.

How does it feel
To say 
I love you
Into an open sky
With nothing between
The words
And the edge of the world
But an apology
To the breathless
For stealing
The last kiss
Before morning
When truthful
Wishes are at a premium
I know
How difficult it is
To finish a dance
When the music
Is still playing
What was always
Your song
Raise a glass
Say a few words at a table
When so much
Of what you once were
Lies in the space
Between every
Unsaid word
Perhaps it is enough
To have known love
Was so much more
Than a promise,
A wish fulfilled
May never return
But the look
Of love in the eye
Of a memory
Can never be stolen
When it is held
In safety
Tucked away
In the most reassuring
Recess
Of your heart.
