does your magnificent energy now explore the spirals of history and future, are your questions answered and new mysteries found? i miss the calm of your balance, the tenderness of your caring, the stimulation of your mind. i miss you! until we meet again ...
remembered tonight, cold night scarf wound, collar turned up shoulders hunched against the chill the night country clear
stars bright against the black sky head tipped back,eyes drawn to heaven's artwork and i remembered you
i remembered summer nights creeping, suffocating heat i felt again the warmth of bricks where we would sit to catch the cool
i remembered an african sky your arm lifted,embracing the firmament showing, teaching, sharing your amazement at the wonder of the stars
seven long years of separation and i have learned to live without you the ache of missing, less probing perhaps until the act of memory brings you to my side
in my mind i lie star gazing my head at rest in your lap my heart at peace in your company in the seeping summer heat
the night chill bites memory fades into reality's background my eyes alone follow these stars i inhabit a world without you
