Will you remember?...

Your eyes and your fingers grazed my beleaguered heart, kindled a spark long buried in the ashes of my years. Lines on your face mirror the highways I've seen, chances taken, by ways traced for a glimpse of the dream. Dare we embrace, even knowing how painful the grieving, how the heart shuts down with doors that are closing. Should we chance that the gain will be more in measure than the loss of the leaving? Our bodies, though lacking the grace of the young, still fitfully tremble at the touch of the tongue, teasing passions inspired to flame. Will we care that perfection of line and of form lie behind us; will it matter if we can't perform as expected when the dance and the music were bold, and perfected with partners we loved and left for new promises? Will you call me your lover if you don't see me naked, if my breasts are soft against the cushion of your thighs as I kneel to caress you? Can we waltz to this tempo, play the blues and Vangelis, and never be angry over commitments? I didn't know I would meet you, you reflected. Now I know what that meant, and my pen trembles as I touch you with words instead of my body. We're older, not old. I'll wait a while longer, if you'll understand I didn't know I would meet you when I have to go home, where only the cold is measurable. And will you remember my softness, pressed against your hard circumstance, surprising the two of us with our boldness? And will you remember that I'll never forget you that I've waited a lifetime to whisper I love you, instead of goodbye?
