His Eyes

I remember the curve in the small of his back where I fit just right and where my knees were cupped by his. They say he’s aged now, tired, sad, silver in his hair but, so have I, and know this it was never the chiseled features of Adonis I sought but that twinkle of eye, never the perfection of legend but a swagger of mischievous pride. I remember the way he looked at me like he’d died and gone to heaven the boom of his laughter, still rings in my mind beside the hollow in his shoulder where my cheek fit. They say he’s tired now worn down by time but I won’t see it…I have memories and the light I’m sure is still twinkling in his eyes.
