Me, My Heart, and I

We all miss you

You’re on our mind, all of we three
We barely get by, please hear our plea

As if in one voice, but three times the torment
There is no way out, there is no assent

How to work together, to respond to this deal?
The three of us lost, no sense of what’s real

My Heart informs Me what I should do
We all dutifully listen, as if with a clue

How to move forward, and what’s coming next
All of us three flummoxed, nothing but vexed

My Heart says to go, “Run to your love!
It’s like a paid fight, “Put on the gloves!

Chase after what’s right, give it your all
Put us all out there, no matter the fall!

Then there is Me, what is there to say?
Let’s be realistic, it’s the cost you should weigh!

Is it better to be hurt, again and again?
To dwell on this loss, until, when, the end?

I know what’s better, of course and with reason
It’s time to move on, to start a new season

Yet the days grow much shorter, I note with chagrin
The time will soon change, daylight tailspin

We three aren’t good, and certainly don’t cope
That we all work together, may be our hope

If we could agree, on words or our steps
We might stand a chance, figure out what is next

The way it is going, there seems little doubt
Things need to change, to figure it out

We must work together, reach common ground
Lean on each other, since you’re not around

Listen, our heart, our head, our ears
Find a way forward, bypass the fears

Embrace the reality, our love is no longer
Get through the days, ‘til we three are stronger…
