Elvy Gerez: ‘Maria’

A week passed by, since she left that other night. I haven’t seen her since, and I miss her like our first time. Sitting by the tree that’s riddled with our memories, it’s hard not to lose myself.

‘Hey, sweetheart, why so blue?’ She asks.

‘I thought, I may never see you again.’

A knot grew in my throat, as I tried to say more. She placed a finger on my lips and sat next to me wrapping her arms around.
Her warmth was distant, but her love constant.

‘It’s ok, I understand, no need to worry.’ she walked towards the field, handing me a smile, “you will see me soon, darling.’

I held my tears, and kept her in my heart as the wind blew
cherry blossoms, taking her away.
‘Rest easy, my love,’
