Simply a Memory

I think of you in song.

in stillness, when
you were alone with your thoughts that
may or may not have been of me; when
you gazed into my heart as you looked elsewhere; when
the music wasn’t yours but was
your friend.

You stood beside the pavilion
striking a pose that set you apart until
you made a space for me in your smile.
What more is there to think of than that?

  1. This is so beautiful Diane, and perfect in every way. Yes it feels sad but speaks, too, of a warm memory maybe. This is one I wish I had written! You have the skill of writing pages in about eight lines ❤ xxxx


    • Thank you, Christine! It is a warm memory … as time goes on, it is not so sad and regretful … but full of gratefulness for having been made. As I replied to Ina … it will ‘really’ be expanded one day in some form of my writing or other. XO ♥


      • I was thinking it might be nice if we could frame those transformational moments–but I guess we do, in the heart’s gallery. And there’s probably a dark hallway where the more painful memories are framed….yes, I believe so. Love to you today, Caddo
