REMINISCENCE

That time again.
The late night brings in
its memories.
In a car,
in a dream, I gazed
at the back of your head,
hair dark,
so soft
on your white neck,
afraid to sleep for fear
of losing the days, the hours,
the moments with you
like this,
like this.

My heart was
full then. It bursts now.
So far away, the memory
all but lost. I reach out
for you, wondering why,
the mystery of the years
yielding no answer.
The night passes on
on its moonlit
path.
You are far
away, so far.
