I See Your Face


I See Your Face

This brief existence

This interlude

At times passes so slowly

Like the drift of clouds

Across a summer sky

Or like the fire of autumn leaves

That lingers for an age

Yet on reflection

My memories of you

An eternity in the making

Seem less than moment

Stolen

From the fleeing winds of time

But in my dreams

My wishes rise

Upon the waves of sleep

The sweet scent of jasmine

Rose light of morning

A shoreless ocean

And I am taken back with the tide

To where time and distance

Are erased

I see your face

Your beloved face

As I used to know it

And your eyes

Deep liquid sapphire pools

In which I long to float

I feel the warmth

Of your gaze

Chasing out the shadows

And the aching loneliness

Running like a river

From my weeping soul
