An Alternate Reality

Missing Morning Glories

The leaves are green
but the vines are bare,
 
Something is missing.
 
I breathe and I move
and I do all my chores, but
 
Something is missing.
 
The vines seem so sad and empty,
as does my heart and my life.
 
Something is missing.
 
Why are there empty stems?
Where are the bright purple flowers of hope?
 
Something in my soul is lost and pines
for the missing morning glories.
