' ARIKE '... so close!
I was touched.
It killed me to learn and think
To lure upon the feeling
To realize, he was the one.
To speak without words
For words were a luxury then
The magic of the eye that waved her wand
I knew at once
I was moved.
The air as I breathed
Gave in a message so deep
Across the space that built in through
And I knew
As I felt it true
So close …
I was blessed.
The love in him and in me to sink
I saw beauty, I saw wonder
To know that the greatest need
Was close; so close indeed
Beyond love without greed..
The language of the heart to hold me proud
The silence to outlive a shouting crowd
I knew it had but touched my soul
A rhythm as in a gentle breeze
