my heart bleeds my love for you
and oft felt presence
of you close, holding memories more than
the scent of you filling our room, before
we felt the need to say
and, upon your return
the sound of your breath
exhaling the words
I love you
exhaling love was inspired by the poem Forevermore, by Kirsten Curcio.
