A Companion's Lament

I remember your tender smile

And the texture of your hair . . .

We came together for a while

But now you aren't there.

 

I remember the song in your field

When we named ourselves a pair

And our partnership was sealed . . .

But now you aren't there.

 

I remember the warmth of your arms,

And the comfort of your care

When you shielded me from harms . . .

But now you aren't there.

 

I remember the gleam in your eyes

When you whispered "Do you dare?"

And the murmur of your sighs . . .

And now you aren't there.

 

I remember passion's lies

As I felt my soul laid bare

But all that's living dies

And now you aren't there.
