Something…

2 stones

Something – in the moment – eyes closed – thoughtful

and there he was – clear and real as life

not merely conjured memory but present.

 

Something – in the moment – eyes closed – thoughtful

and there his eyes twinkled – as though gems

not fleeting recollection of the mind but visible.

 

Something – in the moment – eyes closed – thoughtful

and there he brushed – rough fingers – upon my own

not imagined wistfully created but actually touching.

 

Something – in the moment – eyes closed – thoughtful

and there he parted – farewell he whispered- into my mind

not dying fearfully but peacefully with joy waking away.

 

Something – in the moment – eyes closed – weeping

and then he walked – slowly away – toward light dancing

not sorrowful in his death yet sad he is gone just the same.
