This Unbroken Line

Never
saw it in the mirror.
harsh lights
and just waking eyes
focused on the business
of being presentable
mean the edges are blurred.
But the snapshot,
under cold, blue skies,
bundled from the cold,
I focus
on my face
and I see, plainly,
bits of her
are still with me
and I smile
knowing
life doesn't end
sharply
but continues on
this unbroken line.

  1. Brilliant lines:

    life doesn't end
    sharply
    but continues on
    this unbroken line.
