found a heart shaped bruise today
It reminded me of you
I bruise more easily as I age
Thanks to potions that keep
Me here away from you

For I age and you do not
Your lovely face and loving spirit 
Always In my thoughts and dreams
The youthful vigorous caring you
Suspended in time and space

As I grow old with memories
that blur with age and share
My borderlands of dreams 
And waking thoughts

I discover you there in the corners
Of my consciousness
A wondrous joyous finding on 
An aimless wander 
through my cluttered dusty halls 

Whilst on that haphazard trek
As I hear life's music 
Surround me in its wonder
I find intimacy and comfort
Knowing that you  
Must somehow hear it too
