The White Feather

As I sat remembering, a pure white feather 
Came twirling on the breeze and landed at my feet.
Its softness caressed my toe, gently, softly, 
Swirling, until the breeze carried it away again - gone. .

Like you - gone: taken suddenly, roughly, painfully,
Torn away from life: soul transported to another realm.
We had spoken that day, laughing, reminiscing, arranging 
To ‘catch up’ soon, but ‘soon‘ will never come because  you’re gone. 

I loved you, but you never knew how much.
I loved you and was melted by your sensual touch, 
The sensuous movement of your fingers, the gentle
Lilt of your voice, ‘hello you’, you used to say.

I miss you, but you’ll never know how much.
Even though we rarely met these days, you were always
There: at the end of a phone, at the end of a road, 
But now you’re gone, and I mourn your loss.

I’m sorry we left it too late: the words, the contact, the 
‘Catch up’,  the match of minds, the compatibility of touch. 
I just want you to know that I am grieving for you:
I feel your loss and all the more because we missed our moment.
