In The Slipstream, Between The Viaducts Of Your Dream

Did you love her?
I imagine you asking me
while we're wandering sleepless
through the pre-dawn hours
of a day yet to come.

Very much,
I know I'll say.
She was my light.
She was my muse.
She gave me reason to live.
She gave me purpose
before I was able
to find my own.

Do you miss her?
maybe you'll ask

I did, once,
I'll say
when my memories
colored her more kind than cruel
when I believed
there was no better fit for me
when I wondered
if anyone like you could possibly exist
when I doubted
I'd ever be lucky enough
to find someone like you
to find you
and eventually, maybe
come to love
and be loved by
