As I float gently through the night
Guided by a feeling not familiar to my senses
I reach the grove where time stands still
Cloaked by a darkness, with shadows immobile.
A whisper, a pulse, the fragrance of your breath
An eerie silence, when nature herself is aware
Of the distance you traversed, passing from realm to realm
To drop a simple kiss, on these quivering lips of mine.
A kiss so full of love, of thoughts sweet and joyous
As we try to recreate moments shared together
Before you left, for a world far beyond
Denied to me now, encased as I am in my body.
As lovers we meet, under the trees in the grove
Nature knows, of the profoundness of your love
She forbade the wind to whisper, the leaves to shake
Setting the perfect stage, for the flowing of your love.
A love denied expression, in the world where you lived
Like a normal human, with desires and dreams
When you too ached to be bound by all things material
Home and family, wealth and warmth.
Your dreams and your love, you took with you
Your passionate kiss, meant only for me
Powerless to gift it, as you cried in your deathbed
Gasping for that single breath, threatening to leave.
But that kiss was mine, it had to reach me
Blown across the thin etheric veil
The curtain separating your world and mine
Like a withering dandelion, it would scatter.
So under the grove, as the human world slept
You beckoned me, my soul, to come
With outstretched arms I floated along
For your precious kiss, an unexpressed love.
