Wait     October 12, 2009


dear shadow


hesitate a moment

let me stand beside you

do not take my heart

deeper into eternity


let my breath

form your substance anew

may I somehow

return your eye gleam

your essence to me


stand here with me

beside sheltering tree

massive trunk blocking howling winds

storms threatening to tear

your precious smile from me


I won't touch

I dare not

for my earthly being

may dissolve my last vision

sunder your fading shadow

oh God

I meant not to touch

oh God

make whole my vision

restore shadow smile

oh God give lost friend back to me
