Time

Time
by Anne E Thompson

Time
The great healer,
Has not healed.
Has not numbed
The yearning to see you.
Has not blurred
The pain of missing you.

I need to hear
Once more your laugh.
To see you
Smile in surprise.
To wrap myself
In the comfort of your advice.

Love has not eddied,
Need has not lessened,
Longing has not weakened,
Time
Has not healed.
