Was It You? - Poem by Julie Dant

I thought I sensed your presence
In the sultry southern night
Was it you? Were you there?

Was the breeze I felt upon my cheek
Your breath as you breathed a sigh?
Was it you?

I thought I heard you murmer
Among the moss draped oaks
Were you there?

Were you walking right beside me
Along that dusty moonlit road?
Were you?

I thought you made me shiver
One more time with just your touch.
Did you?

I thought I felt the pressure
Of your fingers upon my lips.
Was that you?

I f I had reached out quick enough
Would you have had to stay?
Would you?

High above these old live oaks
Are you watching over me?
Is it you? Are you there?
