sometimes i just miss you
sometimes when i'm alone
sometimes where time 
meets with memory
and feeling regret that your gone
sometimes i just recall you
to your empty space 
and i almost perfectly
remember your loved face
sometimes it's joyful 
when you sneak in
those little reminders 
that suddenly sink in
and whisper your name
as if out of respect
though there is no reason 
that i'd ever forget
sometimes i live
a few moments with you
though you can't be with me
but i still cant live without you
it's a funny thing
sometimes i feel your alive
alive inside my memory
somewhere outside 
of our very short time

    John, this is so beautiful and touching. I can't help but feel instantly connected to you through your words, the way you capture the feeling of love and of loss. I read it over and over again. So bittersweet and sad, but I loved it! Warm regards, Cynthia

    When those times come they do not come alone but bring the ache with them and we are defenseless! Well developed and marvelously expressed!

    I enjoy the Japanese Maple with its dark red leaves or crimson leaves then there is the Yellow Maple that is so pretty..Then the lowly Sweet Gum that sometimes will have on it yellow, red, and crimson..Sara
