Different Corner

(written February 2023)

I had a dream.

We never met.

I turned a different corner.

One that did not lead to you.

If only dreams were true.

Years wasted,

regret never tasted so good.

I wept in your presence.

I waited for deliverance,

hoping for tomorrow.

Yet, I cried when you left.

Now you have passed from this world to the next.

A different corner for you, and I can turn a different corner too.
