Separation

March 22, 2007 at 2:56 pm (longing, love, missing, poem, separation)

This is for a friend who is really missing her other half. It’s my absolute favourite poem in the world, followed closely by Robert E Frost’s The Road Less Travelled.

Mrs M, this is for you.

SEPARATION
Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.
– WS Merwin
