The ritual of having to say goodbye to my husband each Monday as he leaves for the week.
Before We Know It

Yesterday was
spent with the dread of it,
longing for one more hour
and somewhere to hide.

Nighttime brought
little to dream with it,
twisting and anticipating
the passing time.

In early morning
the alarm calls for it,
the unwelcome routine
of saying goodbye.

Friday will be
here before we know it,
returning our sanity and
saving our lives.
