what’s done

you speak
of the ardor of us
as if it still breathed
pulsed between us
lighthouse guide
of our nights
our flighty days
but it’s yesterday’s sighs
then that quivers
to the thready
beats of time passing
when my fingers
lent yours
delightful animation
you speak
of the soul of us
as if we were still
inseparable
as if time and distance
had not piled
against us
diluting us from then,
from when,
from now

  1. Yesterday’s sighs,
    Still, Still, Still,
    carried the deep ties…

    The night is peaceful all around you,
    Still, Still, Still,
    time and distance never plied through…

    Close your eyes let sleep surround you,
    Still, Still, Still,
    the soul of Us beats on true and true…
