Together

heart art

Together like an echo

I hear the reverberation

See the reflection

Smell the fragrance

trailing my own scent

 

I know you feel it

Just as I do

The loving thoughts

I have of you

 

Together we dance

Among each other’s words

Completing the sentence

Which we’ve been given

By time and memory

 

Handcuffed by dreams

Tricks of imagination

That keep the fire burning

Of our endless yearning

 

Together we long

For the elusive

The unattainable

Turning back of the clock

Rewinding the years

 

To a time and place

Where age was no concern

Obligations feather–dusted

Into another room

 

Together we draw

What we can with what we have

Sometimes it’s in the art

Sometimes in conclusions
