in increments

if i don’t wake
from slumber
know you were
the last thing to sit happily
in my mind
i drifted on

it’s safe
to say

whatever end
i face

i will close my eyes
see your face
and smile

that’s enough
for this fool


every time
i open them

and you
are not there

it is dying
in increments
