If Today

If today I died,
Tomorrow
I would return
As a gazelle…
if I knew you would run in my fields-
Or even a dolphin…
if I knew you would swim in my waters-
But deep magic such as this is pointless,
For you still long to roam in distant lands of
which I am unfamiliar…
So for now, I remain all I am
While I look for you in the moon.

Lorraine, I love the way you have taken such an wonderful metaphoric approach to love and longing and desire for union, but what really makes this poem work is the last line, "I look for you in the moon." I used to tell my son when he was little that when you miss me, look at the moon at 10 o'clock and in that moon I will be. And so, when I traveled, I always made a point to find the moon at 10 and in that moon I would find my son as he would me. So, for me, your poem has a very special significance. Thank you for sharing.
