Wandering Around

Was wandering around
wondering what to do.
and on the sea wall is written
“God loves you”

The wind has dropped and there’s this thought;
it comes from nowhere-
she won’t be back,
I won’t be seeing her.

I lift my face and up came the gulls
over the surveillance camera.

Below, street litter, and along the pier,
over the cafe an ocean sky.

Life can bring you a friend
and life can bring it to an end

I’m sitting in a place we used to love,
everything is as it was.

I felt the presence of your absence.

And here I am,
looking for someone like you.
an easy mistake to make,
as anyone might do.
