Touchstone

You ask if I'm okay,
because I am 
unusually quiet 
today.

I'm just trying to keep memories

so they don't sweep me away

Thank you for being my escape,
a bright light,
my way home, 
my touchstone. 

Your love helps ease the pain.
I don't mean to push you away.
There are so many things I want to say,
but I must go, feed Jake.
