hiraeth: Prepared. 

​I guess I always knew 

That my place in your life 

Would become a tangent to 

Things more present and alive

I guess I always knew 

That my voice in your head

Would dwindle to a distant hum

Like background static 

I guess I always knew 

That the things I had to say

Would take second place 

In the sheen of those nearby 

I guess I always knew 

That the things you had to say

Would become more mundane 

Awash in this distance that separates

I guess I always knew 

That your love and infinite care 

Would and could stand no chance 

Against fateful circumstances

But I thought I was prepared – 

I was not.

I am not.

I never could be.

I never will be.
