missing you

I knew the time
would come
when you would
go away
But that knowledge
didn’t make it easier
to not wish you would stay
Each day I try
to acclimate myself
to this undesirable change
but it feels so wrong
and it feels so strange
This is not the way
I hoped it would be
It’s not the kind of thing
I wanted to have
happen to me.
