Inner Mind



Like wind churning the surface of the sea
your caring and emotion touches me
As light upon the dancing waves
the love you give shines back at you

But far below the raging sea
the currents of the deep that flow
regardless of the touch of day or night
they tell me that it's time to go

Briefly animated by your stay
your going away has left a little hole
through which I view the world
while the changes settle themselves
and new arrangements are made
in my sense of myself
with myself
