Silent Steps


Silent Steps

Miles are between us, there is naught one step towards or from I can't recall,
The pure joy, the angst; the love and laughter; betrayal or trust, we had it all;
Were it possible to lay my fingers upon your check to soothe the stress away,
Or to gently stroke your forearm to relax the angst or pull of the day;
There are days under dark, ominous clouds that both warms and chills as one,
As a fireside that warmed our hearts and souls, or pathways in the sun;
Recalling walks while sharing the sunlight dancing within a crystal spring thaw,
Captured within the rare moments of silent communication to oft recall;
The shadow of your face reveals to heed your call, as if need me there,
I can only dispatch that my loving spirit remains forever in your care;
Yes, distance between us, yet the shadows follow along the path,
Echoes of the past to sate and silent steps that track us back.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
