his

all that time
she’d been adrift
wings on spinning thermals
never searching
but secretly looking
for validation

never wanting to find
a man
who would see her
as the someone she feared most
a nearly complete person
with no understanding of themselves
and compassion for too many

  when her over involvements
left him out
he watched from afar
deciding

this woman
was someone to be near
even when she was not present

to this day
whenever she returns
to those
reflecting pools
in his warm eyes
she sees and believes
she deserves
love

most especially
his

Autumn Leaves

 “I do” put Keith on the fast track to Crazy Town
with a show tune singing maniac;)
(for my husband)
