I Thought of You~

I thought of you last night.

One night among all the thousands of nights that have passed since your hand last grasped mine,

As we lay next to each other in the dark.

I thought of your breath 

Your arms braced

As you raised yourself above me,

The passion in your eyes

A mere reflection of mine.

Our bodies sweaty and slick

As we moved this way and that,

Our combined breaths raspy and raw.

My dearest, my beloved, my knight, my hero, my lover, my husband...

I thought of you last night,

As I turned my body to face where you would be

In another life time and if life were fair.

I turned to face you

And my eyes lit not upon you

But on a rectangular box covered with pictures of you when you were here,

And a triangle shape of red and white stripes and white stars.

My hand reached out to caress what is left of you in physical form,

Fingers curled around those stripes and stars,

And I remembered your strong body raised over mine...

Passion, Love...so much Love...

And closed my eyes towards fitful sleep again...

    Such beautiful writing. You transported me right to the bed that David and I once shared. A bed that is gone. The condo is under new ownership and the intimacy we shared has no tangible remnants. But, lives on in my mind. Yes, if life was fair…

    So true. Miss so much locking my eyes on Sandi and felling her love. I hug her pillow and dream of her every night.
