“Shortest Days”

I shall take heart
and hope
from this the shortest day
I will let each day that passes
with you away from my reach
be as this day
sunrise to sunset
so few hours
time that passes in the blink of an eye

I wrote this piece before I read the prompt from d’Verse this weekend, but I thought that just maybe, it fit in with the theme of the prompt, which is presents and presence. It’s a piece that is a present to someone, and it speaks of missing their presence.
