While You Were Away

While you were away,

my heart expanded,

exploring new pathways,

journeying inside and out.

My life has grown

and yet I have not lost you.

We are still holding the

same thread,

forever woven,

into both of our hearts.

You never left.

while you were away.

  1. “You never left.

    while you were away.”

    I am truly honored Ali by this gift. And I agree with every word with my entire heart.


  2. Wow, the whole piece from beginning to end! I feel seen and heard in this piece both just talking about me or talking about me and someone else. Love it.
