Letter From A Wife

from by Amy LaCour


S. Carolyn Reese, Lyric
Amy LaCour, Composer


I retrace your path in my bare feet
Press my lips against your empty cup
Touch your clothes for now-gone warmth
View each object which your eyes beheld
Write your name and speak the same
I bless each day you elude the pack
Rehearse each word of love we spoke
Recall the vows your eyes declared
Your last touch lingers with me still
I face each day with dragging feat – weary heart
Apart-from-you takes half my strength
The rest I need for waiting.
