I did not know
How much you wrapped yourself around my heart
Until today when sitting in the park
I accidentally caught you eating bread.
You took each bite with your eyes closed
And gently stroked the crust
Like you would do on Sunday in church.
You did not smile but
I think it was the sun who smiled at you
For a brief moment.
I had been there in the cold for quite a while
But did not move or blink or even breathe
You packed the crumbs away and
And then I sobbed.
