Solitude

Dearest ______,

Iím just a little behind you,
close enough to take your hand.
This old body has given up,
just as yours has too,
and the eviction notice is on its way any day now.

Iíve never forgotten your love and your beauty.
But you know that.
I donít have to say any more.
Safe travels old friend.

See you down the road.
Love and gratitude.
