When the darkness set in with my heart-rending news,
with pain beyond my imagination,
my numb body knew just whom to drag itself to.
You became my Sighing Companion.
I didn’t need words.
One can’t hear words
with an unhinged heart.
Blinded by stinging tears,
my world jarred, jolted.
I knew I’d staggered into the right arms,
To you, my Sighing Companion.
