If the words seem far away: love, write them over me.

I promise that I will always remember you this way: outlined a brilliant yellow by the light of the bedroom behind you, standing in the doorway, hand to hip and feet in the delicate shape little dancers learn. I promise that your hair (and the way it rested on your shoulders and colored the left side of your face) will be the thing to wake me up in the middle of the night, and that the curve of your waist will be the thing to lull me back to bed. I will write symphonies from the sigh you gave, will lace them with the sounds of your feet crossing the floor to the frustrated mass of me against the window. When I am old and my sight fails I will press my fingers against my eyelids until I can see the colors of the skin on your reaching arm, your hand around the pen as though it were a part of you. I will know the slow way you slipped out of your dress like the lines on my palms. Instead of the rush of waves, the waves of voices, I will hear only you, whispering against the dark outside and the dark in my head, "if the words seem far away, love, write them over me."
