I never knew her, but still know her intimately

I have never seen the colour of her eyes

but absorb the trusting warmth from them

in the nightly clasp of her hands

*

she left me in a maternity ward

where other mothers nursed new-borns

the nurses indifferent, bewildered by my tears

because she had gone long before we met

*

there is no longer comfort in her persistent shadow
