Gifts...


You gave to me a tiny fragment
Of your heart and soul
But the pieces that you gave me
Were enough to make me whole

You gave to me the shadow
Of your whisper and your sigh
In it I hear the echo
And the prelude to good-bye

You gave to me the timbre
And the aching of your voice
I try not to remember
But it seems I have no choice

You gave me just enough love
The darkened cloud to lift
How was I to know the truth?
They were your parting gift…
