Lingering

Written by: Eileen Ghali

I walked into the bedroom
And into the embrace
Of the scent that you left
Lingering….

I sat at the window
And all that I could feel
Was the warmth of your smile
Lingering….

I played back the words
That had danced out from your lips
Savoring each nuance of love
Lingering….

I looked up at the stars
And saw your twinkling eyes
Bathing me in a light
Lingering….

I cherish every moment
And cradle every dream
You bequeathed to me
Your memory
Your touch
Your essence
Your soul
Lingering….
