In This Life

In the soft sounds of silence I wait
Blue silk billows in the wind
Time endless or illusion stops
As all I know falls quietly and singular -
into a silver tear I am unable to hold onto
In my mind
I trace the lines of your face with a finger-tip
Feel your heart-beat strong and your warmth
Alive, Alive
