To Where You Are by Jennifer

To Where You Are by Jennifer

A Poem by JenniferMarie


The leaves will say goodbye soon,
I saw a few today,
fly through the swift wind,
If only they could carry me to where you are
I’d go back to where we met
on a humid, sticky, summer night
by some old blue pick up truck
stuck between the woods,
where the moonlight crawled through the trees,
and we lie side by side until morning came,
speaking of our dreams

If only the wind could carry me
back through that pebbled path we met each night
I’m acting odd. Does he know why?
My silence drew a kiss that night,
under the stars,
at our spot on the dock
“JUMP, come on, here take my hand”
If only the water I lie near today
running my hand back and forth,
lazily along its current,
could carry me, to where you are someday

Good point, a square in the quilt of life, a thread in our tapestry of being.
Long lost love. This one is so sweet with yearning, Jennifer. I can hear her sigh next to that water. I like how you take us from autumn to summer and back again. Angi~

Thank you Angi. :)
A play with words with this verse... takes you, the reader back and forth through the lines... seems almost a song... a story line cut short and pondering...

My mind went directly to this, if it works for you. To me your words echoed the song.
