The Link Between Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Depression ...

It seems so long since parting ways.
You said you had to go,
then held me tightly in your arms.
I softly pleaded, "No."

And now I'm here and so alone.
This darkness claims so much.
I long to see your smiling face
and feel your tender touch.

I hold my head within my hands,
a tear forms in my eye.
I fight the pain of loss and woe.
I swore I would not cry.

My fragile heart and sorrowed soul
weighs heavy on my mind.
This torment haunts my every thought
when you leave me behind.

How happiness will overwhelm
when I see you at last.
The emptiness that cuts so deep
will all be in the past.

I long so for your safe return,
what joyous times we'll share.
Each memory I have of you
will calm my dark despair.

I miss the solace of your voice,
that nothing can replace.
I miss your taste upon my lips
while lost in our embrace.

I count each minute we're apart,
each moment seems like hours.
But soon the loneliness will fade
when time again is ours.

You'll hold me close and wipe my tears
and softly whisper, "Hush."
You'll soon be back into my arms,
I heard the toilet flush.
