He lies there and stares at the window that he painted, to keep out the light.
He thinks he can see her shadow. Yes! there she is in all her glory.
He can make out all the detail in her silk kimono.
He traces the outline of her face with his fingers.
He brings his fingers to his lips, kissing them gently.
He begins to cry, tears that fill his eyes blur the fading vision of her.
He turns his head into his pillow, to keep out the light.
He lives one more sleepless night, alone.
