Image for the poem With Time

With Time

I walked down to
the river front...
glad to feel the sting
of the wind on my face...

No one was there...
just me...and your spirit

I sat on a swinging bench
that over looks the water
I closed my eyes...and
let the pristine image
of your smile...permeate
my memory...

I swear...
I could feel you
sitting next to me

I believed I could
hear your voice
in the hollow spaces..
where the wind whistled
through the trees ...

I begged you...
to make sence of all this
for me...

I whispered for you...
to make Auntee understand...

Fresh hot tears began to
cascade down my face...
Such a vivid contrast...
Hot tears...
Cold wind....
I held on to this pain
afraid that if I let it go
I will be carried off into
some other alternate universe
Where pain and grief...are every day things
A woman walked by me...
and paused ...for a moment
then she looked up and smiled at me
I tried to smile back...
Yet only more tears fell.

The woman said " Baby, I don't
Know whats wrong...but believe me
everything heals with time"

All I can say is...
I hope she is right.
With everything in me....

I hope she is right
