you & i

you & i
we are closer than friends
closer than enemies
all of you is with me
all the good you are is with me
all the bad you are is with me

i speak to our children and i hear your voice
i look in a mirror and i see your face
your spirit and mine are so intertwined that
separation is impossible

and when you are gone
i will scream with rage
i cannot let you go
i cannot let you leave

and yet
when you let me go
when you leave me
i will be here in my sea of sadness
because i cannot imagine what i will do
or what i will be
when you are gone
