0048 A Poem to a Lover IV [30 May 1997]

Dear Johnathan,

I can’t stop thinking of you,
Of your smile,
Of your laugh,
Of your free lifestyle.

Why is it I am haunted by you?
Why, in the middle of night,
Do I dream of you,
And want of you your love.

Of our lives,
I wonder how deeply
Our souls have entwined
Themselves about each other
And how far they have done so.

I could never live my life
Without you.
If you left I’d never
Never know where to go.

But then,
If I had never met you,
I would never know
The love you give me.

Why is it that life plays with you?
Allow you to find someone
To live, to love, to die with
And tears them away.

Tears them away
Like a flower’s bloom
From its rooted stem
To want for life, but die from separation.

When will you be back?
For I fear
That time goes slowly,
As if in jest with me.

From a lover
Truer than the heart.
Forever yours,
Forever lost without you.
