Absence in Winter

Time, patience, distance, space, separation,
What are these if you do not experience love?
The void, the absence, the silence, the waiting
What are these if you do not love?
The price of love is this in case of absence
The longing, the wanting, the hurting.
How deep does it cut, how deep does it feel?
How deep and dark is the night away from the soul
Away from the light that burns bright within.
How long is the night when the moon does not shine?
And there is nothing to hold onto but your dreams
The longing and the hurting and the wanting
Linger like the blackened night cold and separated.
This is the deep winter of my discontent.
