Darling.

Close your eyes, Darling
And pretend
His arms are wrapped around you
Like you’re a gift
And pretend
This is a world where he chose you

Take deep breaths, Darling
And imagine
He’ll be there in the morning
With tea and toast
And imagine
It didn’t end and he didn’t turn away

Listen softly, Darling
And hear
The words you longed for
Instead of silence
And hear
Love and affection returned to you

Now wake up, Darling
And be here now
In real life where you matter
To more than one
And be here now
Where you lived before love and will after too
