Before we parted

I keep a lock of your hair

Close to my heart

It reminds me of the peace I felt

Watching your long tresses cascade

Over sheets of satin

And of how it felt to hold you close

On those passionate nights

We made the very most of love

And now that we have parted

And you have found your rest

The only recompense I find

Exists so deep within my mind

In memories of the tenderness

We shared

As I ache with the remembering

Of the dark beauty of it all

And recall

How glad you made my heart

On those long winter nights

We shared

Before we parted
