Present Echoes

Up with the birds again
Coffee in hand
Garden flowers filling my view
Still wrapped in bemusement
And dreams of you

My former boyfriend
Morphed by time
Into a friend indeed
Though by circumstance
Never a friend in need

From the fire of our teens
To a soul mate
A flame ever renewable
We forged a bond
Apart but inseparable

Sometimes I’m left lonely
By staying in touch
Words aloud and words unsaid
But you bring me to life
When I feel half dead

The world calls me back
From ancient reveries
Life’s too short for regrets
And I am so glad Dear One
That we choose not to forget
