I see you
though you are not here
in the warm eye of the sun
in the golden sparkle of galaxies

I feel you
though you are not with me
like the taste
of an ancient love
on my lips

I have known you
like the ocean
knows the water
and desert knows the sand

my love, its more
than a vague remembrance
a raw craving
a humble yearning

I am there
even when I am not
you are here
even when you are not

don’t you feel
sometimes
a thousand sighs of me
breathing through you?
