(June 1,1991 / California)


There was a night where
I traveled through Disneyland tunnels
To meet you at a park.

Yes, tunnels that lead to Disneyland
But they didn't take me there.
Instead, I found the happiest place on Earth.

I was taken to my favorite park
The one I always went to as a kid
And you were standing there when I emerged

There was a smile on your face
Surrounded by a crowd as we embraced
I had longed for your touch.

My happiest place was never tangible
Nor imaginable until that moment with you.
It was never Disneyland, nor Eastwood Park

It was in your smile, your laugh, your embrace.
I'd never known something to be as pure
Than the unconditional love I felt for you then.

If I had only made that dream a reality
Just one more time - one more time..
Than the first and only day you hugged me.

I will bear this pain in semblance
If and only if to hold you again
In my dreams.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
