gray hair for the 1st time-

reaching up
reaching up
to the faceless clouds,
writing
with my fingers
as you look at the ground

planning another
planning another
folly, taking my mind
ahead of now-
the dull grey sky,
darker by the minute...

night bells
night bells
interrupt my thoughts
of you,
but the cool breeze
whispers your name

rolls through the black sky-
she tells me good night

trying to recall
trying to recall
the years we were together
before the children-
perhaps I can't remember
because we were children

gone are the days
gone are the days,
she says, as we walk
down the road-
I see her reflection
on the windows

rocking him to sleep
rocking him to sleep-
secretly dreading the night
I'm not needed

this moment
this moment
right in front of me,
I let it go
for someone else
to have

in your mind
in your mind
you will always be
younger than me
but when the day comes
you pass me, I hope you smile

wondering if
wondering if
I'm found in others'
memories
and if I were to ask,
would I be told?

I know you're there
I know you're there,
moon, seeing the faint light
in the dark clouds-
longing for the time
I will see you...

each word
each word
becomes a part of the past
as I write,
not wanting to stop, knowing
I'll eventually lose

this february midnight
in the warm air-
suddenly wish you were here,
or I were there...

one more house
one more house
torn down piece by piece-
growing tired of
memories of things
that no longer exist

railroad stops
railroad stops,
blocking the road
in front of me-
reminded again
how I'm tied to the ground

not feeling
like being myself today,
weighing my options,
hoping no one wants me-
hoping no one needs me

you were here

at least this time,
I tell the sun-
laying out my clothes
for tomorrow
