The Visit

I feel you here in this quiet place,
my soul is at peace
My fingers trace the letters of your name
The scent of flowers pervades,
I smile, remembering your love of them
Sadness fades as remembrance visits
I see again your smile, close my eyes
in the joy of your laughter
and know you are here with me
I will rest here too one day
my name sharing the polished marble
The knowing gives me solace
The wind tugs my coat wistfully as I leave,
in that familiar caress again I feel you
I will return one day
and I will stay
I promise."
