2014 Day 21 – I Am a Mateless Swan

I am a mateless swan,
Fish without chips,
Pen with no ink,
A choir without music,
An unsolved puzzle.
I reach out
To the cold half
Of a too-big bed.
I am left without right,
Down with no up,
A single chopstick,
A lone turtle dove.
I keep going only
Because I have to
For you, my children.

Note: the prompt was to write a poem in the voice of a member of my family.
