My Beloved

Kaela Chow '10

Dear beloved,I miss you,Our time held too short every night.So many times I’m left wanting moreAnd too many I’m taken prematurely.The sirens rang and I leftWith barely a goodbye.Yet I know you await my returnAnd you know I will return.Last night I was ripped from youAnd stumbled into a cruel cold world;

I missed you, dear belovedMy dear beloved bed

*Sirens can be either the alarm clock, or that wonderful thing we know as the 2 a.m. fire alarm.
