White Sheets

"Please be with me.
Love me the way you do now, forever."

He wakes and checks. Again.
She's not there. Again.

Empty white sheets and a propped pillow.
Black underwear and fallen golden hair.

Tomorrow is another day,
For hope against hope.

As love is the play,
With a stage set... Theater in motion.

"You are the best man I have ever met.
I love you like nothing I've ever known."

He closes his eyes tight. Again.
She's there. Again.
