There was something that I wanted to say,

On the very last day,

Of the year when you and I became one.

That you’ve left a mark,

Which became a spark,

And lit a flame where there was none before.

And from this light,

I survived the night,

To live and love you more.

But as the days grow on,

As the night became dawn,

I could feel you slipping away.

So I just wanted to say,

That I wish you would stay,

And not go away.

Today.

      You are a master when it comes to the stringing of only essential words loaded with emotion into a poem. Best wishes for 2018. May it meet all your expectations.

      This is very succinct and to the point. If this was written from a personal perspective I hope that loved one decided to stay.
