Again, You Were Right…..

You said it
You had it
perfectly

This deep
sadness
Empty
Sorrow
Pain

Is as if
someone whom I deeply
love
has died

It is you I mourn
Us

And the mourning –
as if we were Partisans in hiding –
must be kept
secret
silent

It is you
I
mourn

The places we will never go
together

The songs we will
never
sing

You

For you I mourn

For all your pain, you

Whose eyes as black as olives
Whose supple neck thousands died for
on the field in Troy
Whose smile put Mona Lisa
to shame

You, me
Us

You
