As you laid there
Your head in my lap.
In the quiet of silent conversation
Out hands learned all our ears could not hear.
Words were unneeded
An unwanted intrusion.
And a feeling of eternity
Wrapped around us and through us;
We did not dare break the spell.
Your arms encircled me,
Your eyes closed,
Your lips smiled
As my fingers traced your outlines;
Intertwining your hair,
Caressing your face,
We were happy
Oblivious to the passage of time.
We would have remained,
Left to ourselves,
But this was not to be.
Somehow the dream has crumbled.
My heart implodes to the tune of a tear
That nobody hears
But, I shall always remember you thus.
