when I arrived

when I arrived
you had already left
carrying diamonds

your hair was a different colour, length
your clothes
your face
but the diamonds in your hand
were the same as ever

by the time I reached the top of the hill
your ship was already nearing the horizon

I do not want or need the diamonds
I need only your forgiveness
