Wait For Me

(photo credit linked to photo)

Billowy white powder

Dusting my face.

“It’s snowing” I said,

And you pushed off, down the mountain.

Until that moment I had been

Holding my own keeping up with you;

Keeping secrets, holding my breath

A game of wait and see if you dump me

When you know the truth.

I lost you in the moguls

And have avoided them ever since.

Around the bend, half way down

From chair lift number three,

Steep, smooth mountain, mogul-free,

You were waiting for me.

You smiled The Smile

that melted fear

into something that existed before I met you.

I closed my eyes and 34 years

Passed in one night.

“My fears have been realized”

I said last night.

You promised through choked back tears

To wait for me

There in the snow bank,

Half way down from

Chair lift number three.

Your love story is positively beautiful, Deb. That beauty is what keeps you strong enough to set your fears aside for now.
Love you, sweet lady.

Hard to type any words with a lump in my throat the size of this poignant, powerful piece you've shared.

Sending you sunrise,

"something that existed before I met you"
Always there, always will be.

Tears. Moguls cannot be avoided, but how we would if we could. Write, Deb. Catch these moments and hold them.
