Picturing You

I can't picture you,
without feeling my heart jump
I can't picture you,
without my breath hitching
I can't picture you,
without tears threatening to fall
I can't picture you,
without feeling your loss

I can't not picture you,
as my Life,
my Love,
my World.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
