 three word wednesday  january 14, 2009: entwine, forfeit, tryst

this morning i noticed the calendar
hanging on the wall
January 2009
it’s almost been a year

inanimate timeline
just out of reach
i cannot accept just yet

we talk almost every day
over lonely morning coffee

entwined we are
flesh and spirit

each night just before
i close my eyes
i turn reaching across
to your empty side
and kiss you goodnight
sweet dreams

i would forfeit
everything here
to be with you there

as always you smile
lean over, and
kiss me back

i cannot help
but long for you

i gently plead
when no one sees
a tryst of time
again, with you
a small forever

for a dear friend counting days without him. russ and linda a life interruped. linda, i love you dearly…. previous posts are here

    Wow! Damn, how well and good I can relate my own station of reality these days in your poem!
    As if you’d been inside my mind…wow!
    I mean, of course there’s always something in a poem that one can relate to… BUT THE WHOLE POEM?!!
    I love “Once More”!! …so beautiful sentiments are conveyed in words!

  2. This is beautiful. I have only just accessed the whole poem. I was only getting the first half without the picture until I noticed where to press to read the rest. It’s so beautiful and so sad…’lonely morning coffee…entwined we are/flesh and spirit’.

    very touching and very dear. I am so sorry for your loss, only time will heal, make it bittersweet but then again not.
