A Girl - Poem by Barry Middleton

I never will forget her kiss
she was my universe

she was there when it began
a hundred lifetimes ago

she was an old and mystic soul
and I knew her tears

and she heard my plea
she heard the stars and moon

she heard my love and grief
and she heard death

she knew mysteries
that could save me from fear

she was like a chain of clover
connecting everything

    Thank you Tia. Yes, she passed away many years ago. We were divorced when she died but she still haunts my dreams.
