Time stood still with you.
More than once.
Love and laughter echo
on and on, always.
Driving down a windy mountain road
in chilly late afternoon tree shadows.
Picking daisies in a meadow under
the ‘no trespassing’ sign because
Dancing to the music of our hearts
along a mountain ridge with waterfalls
Walking into Ocean holding hands as
though strolling down a lane,
smiling like idiots with the
setting Sun our witness.
So many memories of time
standing still with you.
Gone you are
with Yoda-esque nerve
and wise words laced
Through the mist of time
I see you now joined with Sun’s silent
witness and Moon’s elegant song.
Your stark absence cannot dull
the echoes of laughter and love
that continue on and on in
gentle waves in the chambers
of my heart.
