Once More

I sat outside a café
the dog at my feet

as the sun moved behind a cloud
a thought came to me –
if someone told me I had an incurable disease

all I’d want is
to ask if I could hold you one more time


Haven’t been able to get to studio much, so I’ve been making some monotypes


give me back that night
the night when I knew you were going
I read to you as you lay next to me
I read even though my throat was dry
and my heart was breaking

I read and read
begging inside that you wouldn’t sleep
and the night would never end
because I knew this would be the last time
I’d be here with you




Been to the studio a couple of times recently, and managed to finish these 5 paintings; all oil on canvas.
