Reunion (Revisited)

Time slows down

The moment we touch

Rest of the world

Drifts away

There is only

Remembering

you

Remembering

us

Together

 

I see now

that the memories

haunting me

in the middle

of the night

these long weeks

apart

were just ghostly

pallid

things

 

You are here now

and you are

technicolor

to my starved eyes

Familiar smell

of your warm skin

intoxicating

as I press

my nose gratefully

to your neck

 

Feel of your

bare skin

under my palms

under my mouth

pressed against me

both homecoming

and wonder

of exploration

 

For every detail

I have

remembered

I discover

forgotten nuance

Memory had

softened the edges

of what it feels like

to mold ourselves

to each other

 

We have always

been each other’s

missing jigsaw pieces

Most fully whole

in connection of our

souls

hearts

bodies

 

You sleep peacefully

beside me now

Lines and tension

in your face

smoothed away

There is a

vulnerability

an openness

to you

lying next to me

 

I lay my head

gently

carefully

on your shoulder

You wrap 

strong arms

around me

Sleepily nuzzle

my hair

murmur words of love

of missing me

of missing us

Remind me drowsily

that we have always

been home

to each other

And finally

I feel

at peace
