Closing - A collection of tanka poems

Love the one you’re with

For you don’t know if today

Will be the closing

Of what you once secured

The belief that love stays true


First I was afraid

Of what would come later on

The dark lonely night

But then you quelled my fear

With a promise to never leave


The beauty of love

Only dims when you go away

And leave me behind

To stay in this life alone

Waiting for you to return
