I try to decide what to say should we meet.
My heart slows to a leisurely beat.
You approach with a soft greeting.
I can hardly respond, but manage a “hello”.
Then you take me warmly into your arms.
My mind goes blank as I hold you back.
All I can think about is being in your embrace.
It seems to last forever.
Though I know it is only a moment.
Gently you slip from my embrace.
I don’t fully realize it till you’ve nearly departed.
You walk away and all I wanted to say returns.
I try to speak, but you are too far gone.
All I can think of is what I didn’t get to say.
Then I realize all that was needed to be said
Was said; in that one silent moment in your arms.
