There is no one more foolish
than me, if I think you are gone.
No, you are with me every minute of the day,
a fact that will last my whole life long.
Your charming smile says, “live and be happy.”
You are with me, I sense your presence
though I can’t explain how or where.
Every dawn brings a feeling of arising together,
a feeling that enlivens my days and nights.
The love, the fun, and those precious moments we shared
lend an ease to my days to fare forward free and fine.
Remember dear, when we toured that mountain kingdom,
where the winds were gentle and the clouds whispered,
those walking tours along wide river, the woods, camping
by the creek that flows down the mountain path?
Golden memories with the fresh flavor of sun kissed
banks of floral beauty, reflect your clear and comely
translucence in the mirror of my joyous heart.
A powerful inherent feeling assures me, dear,
that our love lasts beyond the mundane, beyond ashes.
