🏝 Oasis ☀️

via Daily Prompt: Conjure



Grieving for far too long,

fading away with

each passing day…

Missing you,

yet, missing me too.

I was not the one who died,

but my heart and soul

continued to cry.

Then suddenly…

Without searching,

my eyes wide shut

flickered wide open.

An inspiration came 

into view…

Was it an oasis

conjuring what my

heart and soul

truly yearned?

Was it a mystery,

a seed planted

to cause trickery?

I wake each day

with a lump in 

my throat…

Will he be here, yet again?

Will he extend his hand

and give me hope?

I guess I’ll never know,

but for now…

I’ll settle for this


At least he

brings a smile 

to the grimace 

I wear on my 

solemn face.
