Joy Helsing



return
 
here I am
by myself
at the same romantic inn
where we once stayed
 
I walk the rose-bordered path
dine at the same table
gaze at flames
in the same stone fireplace
watch the sun sink
into the same cold sea
 
lie in the very bed
we once shared
no more alone
now
than I was then
