My Solace

It is comforting, my solace
to know that you exist
in this world, as you are
wherever
you are
breathing, thinking, being, living.

I can hold you in a memory just as I can hold your hand
and that gets me through.
I cannot see you but you are here, for in the back of my mind
I hold a picture of you.

To be conscious of another’s existence –
What a strange and riveting sensation.

That I am aware
of you
makes me more aware
that I am.
