Poem: linda m. crate

sun & moon

your arrival
usually fills me with joy
i am usually thrilled
to have you present,
but lately i have this anxiety
that you'll wake up
one morning and leave;
i will be bereft
of your friendship and your kindness
and that thought troubles me—
i wish i were strong enough to say
that i wouldn't miss you,
but that would be a lie;
i value your friendship you are the sun
to my moon
i can still shine without you but i don't want anyone else
to borrow my light.
