When last we spoke,
I mentioned how long it had been,
since we could recall ourselves,
we had distance in our eyes,
the lines of time, the paths of freedom,
we traversed hours in search of how we knew
our lives were meant to be.
When your eyes said hello,
after the minute or two of
we knew that time was less relative
than it was real for the moment.
At least I had hoped you might believe me,
but I gave you no reason to imagine
we could be the same again.
I remember looking around the room,
and seeing familiar faces, eyes, smiles,
hands grasping their only world for the moment,
I do recall seeing
wondered whether grace would ever be allowed
in conversations again.
I recall being here before,
wondering if I might ever understand,
why this place would always be familiar.
I wandered away that day, just hoping somehow,
we might see this day again, but I didn’t know when …
that might be when I decided to retrace my …
I might have realized then,
I was hoping again to find you in my dreams.
