has it been so long since I heard your laugh

not just its echo in my mind

this summer you were with me in a field of wildflowers

on a mountain in Idaho

not a soul around but yours and mine.

in that warm sunbathed field I laughed and cried

and you did too.

I whispered your name, hugged you close with my breath

I am who I am because of you,

because we all had to carry on what you left undone.

I love you still, and miss you still, and always will.

But especially in the snow that you help to fall

and the light,

so low and bright

it enters the marrow and lights up my soul

the way your laugh used tosolstice2016
