'There's someplace special
that I want to show you’
he told her one day,
and she followed.

Hidden in the shadow of a mountain
he told her it was his favorite spot
in the whole wide world,
and when she asked why
he said it was because
that was where her voice was sweetest,
her touch warmest,
their love brightest.

Though she didn’t fully understand,
it became their special place,
and they visited often.

As they grew older
he brought each of his children out individually,
and when they asked why
he said it was because
that was where the world seemed biggest,
impossibilities smallest,
their problems most trivial.

Though they didn’t fully understand,
they grew to love that place,
and they visited often.

The years flew by faster
and the man passed away,
so they spread his ashes in that place,
and when people asked why
his great grandchildren said
that was where the stars shown clearest,
the world spun slowest,
and life seemed most limitless

Though they didn’t fully understand,
it became clear to these people that this place
was special,
and they visited often,
because that was where life became most whole,
and they loved it
because it was indeed special.

But I Miss You

We can’t live like Jack and Sally
because apparently
it’s not what we both wanted,
and the spiderwebs I’ve been counting
have grown too numerous-
I’ve lost track of how many there are.
Where are you?
I could never be sorry
for what occurred.
I’m not even sure
what happened,
and I’m having troubles sleeping.
My dreams,
though unremembered,
are still tormenting me.
I need somebody,
but I’m not so sure who anymore.
