Memory Of A Last Embrace

Memory of A Last Embrace

    by Edmund Siejka

Wasn’t it only days ago
When she was beside me
Long brown hair 
Brushing against my face
Sighs and murmurs. 

Summer brought 
Hot days
And humid nights.

And then one day
She left me.

I found a note 
Face down on the coffee table
It was brief
To the point
Almost businesslike
Saying a lot
And not saying anything at all. 

I didn’t know what to do.

And so the story goes
The ocean is wide
The ocean is deep
True love 
Never dies.

At quiet time 
When I think of what happened
In my life
I remember  
We were like one 
Mornings together
Holding hands
No need to ask what we wanted
Did we even care
Back then? 

In early light  
She is sitting beside me
At the kitchen table 
I stare at her face
Listen to her breathing 
And realize 
That I haven’t seen her in years.

The sun shines 
Full force now
Shadows have moved
From the still warm coffee pot
And over the things that make up a kitchen
Another day is here 
So my friends, I say no thanks
Who needs the memories?
