Only You

only you,
no one else.

take your brush,
run the bristles through
and set it well.

rub concealer
upon your face and neck
to hide you.

run a pash stick
over your ruddy lips to
hide the peeling.

wear something
not so revealing, yet a
little unlike you.

say your goodbyes,
whisper to your Mother,
“Goodbye, Mum”.

take a small case,
only the significant things
you hold so dearly.

come alone to me,
tell me nothing remains and
all pain will cease.
