I saw him from a distance once today,
The one who possesses my fractured heart.
A child dances
Around him, adored, her bright eyes trusting.

The one who possesses my fractured heart
Bids me greeting now and again, fragments
Of attempted normalcy fade his voice,
Bringing forth tears that refuse to be shed.

A child dances
Without the slightest notion of despair.
How I envy her! She is trusting still.
In a white dress, happy, laughing, twirling

Around him, adored, her bright eyes trusting.
He swoops her up, high into his strong arms –
The way he once danced with me, older now.
I saw him from a distance once today.
