wanting so much
through the years
but now
just to hold you
to be held

your every movement
is like breath to me
a gentle breeze
heading out
across the sea

for Karen on her birthday

you gave me life
fixed me when I was broken
but now that you've gone
all I can do is wipe
dust from your smile

only a dream?
that day we rose
and fell together
weightless through
a summer sky

I would
ask the wind
of freedom
but fear I could not
live its truth
