No Longer Here

How can I surprise you
when you’re the one
with whom I share

Each breakthrough,
each change,
I reach for the phone
to share the news.

Just this one instance
when I can’t call you,
it makes me think
of what will be.

What happens
when the reason
is just that you
are no longer here?
