I see your distant form as I look out
and imagine that you are smiling so handsomely
with your hands tucked into your pockets
as you ponder my arrival and its meaning
because we are like two parts of one
and you do not know why I see you
except that you must know how excessively
I think of you day in and night out
and how much I want you to hold me in your long arms
as you sweep me up into the swirling skies
because you soften my resolve when I look at you every time
and I come to the inevitable wonder
of how so in love I am with you once again.
