I watch you fade into the mists
as underworld voices hiss
to tell me I am not allowed
to follow

yet even as you disappear
a memory comes clear
of who and how I was before
you crashed into my life

and one vagrant tear must fall
even as a still small smile
reawakens on my face
to bring the feel of love
back home to me
