Yours for the asking

Outside my window

Leaves blow in summer’s glare

Reflecting shadows on the

Periphery of vision

While here

My silent heart

Beats out the broken rhythms of its longing

Night holds you in its embrace

Oceans away

As I send out this echo

Across time

Hoping in your dreams you will find

An imprint of me

Deep within dreams nocturnal shadows

You told me last night

Your pillow is lonely for me

Your words of love

Help me breathe

More easily

Than I ever did

Without you

And so as the breeze blows

I hope you know

Somewhere deep inside

What these past weeks have meant

And if I had to go

Leaving you wanting

Please remember

My heart is still

Yours for the asking
