Memories Remembered - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

love remains
attached to my fingertips
as securely as it is attached
to my heart.
the cold blows
pelting rain
like ice marbles
standing, staring, wanting
I feel nothing
except your last breath
on my neck
I recall everything
with great lucidity
hands pressed to face
I am pulled back to Eden
surrounded by a storm
turning my face skyward
eyes closed
fingers dancing gently across it
I can feel your kisses
on my forehead, eyelashes and cheeks.
the rain, my love
had turned to snow.
