The wood and windows
let in light and held warmth…you were there
I sat in your lap and you held me
You loved me…
The empty room contained all that you are
And you wanted me.
Your hounds-tooth coat matched my small hounds-tooth cap
Years later, it’s barely worn; no fraying at all
A small wool cap with velvet ties and edges
still all-most perfect…
Why aren’t I?
You made yourself known to me
In an empty room filled with light and warmth
Do you love me still?
I long for your light, your warmth, your love
If not for the cap, would I remember you at all?
Why did you want me then? and now?
Meeting in an upper room
Have I been there?
Will I ever be there?
Why do I remember the dream so well but not you?
After all these years
Are you there?
Do you still love me…really?
