Bear


We are bound forever.

another day in my life with you
I can’t imagine a night
without you at my side
without you when I wake

your hair mussed . . . blue eyes open
ready when I wake
you smile and say “I need lovin’, Bear”
I reply, “I need Bear lovin’ ”

I run out the door to make work on time
they say, “I wish I were you”
I won’t drop a ball all day
not while I’m on top of the world

I’ve found my love
I feel your breath on my cheek all day
I smell your scent
all day in countdown until I see you again

we are bound forever.

now I see sadness behind your frozen smile
blue eyes blank
I ask if you are here
but you are far, far away

in a place so black
you will never find your way
you are the sunset
beautiful, but going dark

another day in my life without you
I can’t imagine a night
without you at my side
without you when I wake

your scent . . . your touch . . .
your tears falling on my face
I am grateful for our last night together
before darkness enveloped you

we are bound forever
but my tears can’t reach you
through the stone shadow
through the turned soil

I can’t reach you, Bear . . .
Bear, we are bound forever.

we are bound forever . . .
