If You Are Not Around... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

Make me feel
that you are still mine

on a midday
shower me with rain

at night
peep to my window like the moon

or be the wind at dawn
make my hair rise

in the morning
when i stare at the ceiling

or when i sit
at the veranda facing the sea

seeing a boat
sailing alone at sea

be my sunrise
be my brewing coffee

be my maple syrup
to my pancake

make me feel
that you are around

be the spirit
to my body.
