In Your Absence

You are far from where I am
But you are still with me
Your scent is carried
On the apparel you sent
Which wraps itself around my frame
Just the same as your loving arms
Holding tight
In warm embrace
During such a cold day
An ally against
Chattering teeth and
Shivering appendages
A reminder
That I will always return
To you

Longing
A word that I am learning
I have never understood
Quite comprehensively
For what I feel now
Is not steeped in
Anxiousness
Uneasiness
Emptiness
Rather
It is here
In your absence
That I am reaffirmed
The true value
Of your presence
