My Honey

My heart breaks
My honey
My honey
My honey

Always a triplet
Like the start of a poem
now lost.
Stanza of some remote song.
My honey
My honey
My honey

It repeats over and over
Fluent aphasia ?
My honey
My honey
My honey

Once a daughter
Once a woman
Once a Coast Guard’s woman
Once a lover
Once a mother
Now……
My honey
My honey
My honey

Broken hearted
I turn away
Tears erupting like spring-time in Egypt

There is so little time before
all is lost
Before love’s shadow strikes and,
like her, is gone.
