Where You Belong: A Poem

I saw you today
In my periphery
An echo of the shadow
of a sigh
Escaped my throat
So amazed

I saw you today
Walking swiftly past
With that tell-tale smile
That you used to reserve for me
Polished up for the day

I saw you today
Arm in arm with her
The one who knew you better
Even when I thought I did

And I wish I could capture you
on film
I wish I could make you stay
Frozen in time and space
To serve my selfish needs
But you needed to fly
To soar
To reach for the stars

And while I understand
I need you to know
That I’ll never stop
loving you

I saw you today
In my periphery
The echo of a shadow
of a sigh
That will always exist
inside me
Where you belong.

      1. Not a real question hun. Just thought it was interesting that anyone Russian would use the word “hun.” I really like your blog.
