Friday 17 April 2009


Years erode and memories scatter
Subtle imprints
Of your touch
I reach in faith but only flounder
And to kindness clutch

I remember…

Your first look
My purpose took
And spirit quickly won

Your first smile
Is blinding while
Inept I stutter on

And then…

The ritual dance
I blow my chance

Hopeless fumble
Passion stumble
Ardour crumble

...and I never dance again
