A Divan for Dying

Dying on a Divan

When you left, I laid out a divan
for dying, and waited to die
from the wrong,
                  but I discovered
that even if you're not near me,
just knowing there's someone
like you in the world
is enough to go along,

I don't know who'll watch
over you now, or lie down with you
at the end of a long day,
                  for I may bolster and bluster,
but I'm just a foolish boy
that cries over a song
when it talks of you away.

God my body misses you.
That's all this is supposed to say.
