Where Are You?

I haven't slept very well lately,
thinking of you,
and wondering
why we're not together.
I lie here in your bed,
    a candle flickering
from a nearby chair,
your cat watching me curiously
    from across the room.
But ...
where are you?

I need you by me
to touch
and know that you're here.
Instead ...
    I only know emptiness
    in your bed
beside me.
Your pillow unused,
even by me,
waiting patiently for your return.
But my patience
        is not like your pillow's.
I can't wait.
