I Remember

I remember

Long ago

In a blameless time

An improbable man

Drifted into my life

Casting shadows on my soul

Filling my mind with possibilities

And my heart

With boundless excitement

I remember

A gentle man with tranquil ways

Who spoke in hushed tones

And physical gestures

As he delivered knowing glances

And secret smiles

I remember

Feeling safe and loved

As I toyed with reckless abandon

And released laughter

Like a playful child
Standing in gritty dunes of sand

While salty wind brushed my hair
I recognized the fact

That I was home

I remember
