The Luckiest Man

Lovely is this special place
You picked for yourself here.
Nestled in these rolling hills
A home with treasures now all filled.

Just a stone’s throw from where you lived,
When you were a young girl.
A tomboy or so you thought yourself,
And what a sight I’m sure you were!

What a lucky man I am.

Much water under the bridge there is,
Yet still I remember well.
The first time I ever touched you,
As we collided at our school that day!

Fortunately neither damaged,
Both ruffled much, much more.
By the lingering touch of our eyes,
At the instant your books hit the floor.

What a lucky man I am.

Over separate roads we both have traveled,
In the years since I disappointed you.
Yet now the child of ours you raised,
As a man sees us together new!

I wonder how it is after all those years,
You maintained this torch in your heart for me.
Any poor souls you sent to ruin I should never know,
The strength of your loving heart I feel.

What a lucky man I am.

Hardly at all has time changed what I see,
Like the timeless beauty of your smile.
The little fires glistening brightly in your eyes,
Still waiting for me somehow.

So amazed am I to be here,
Sharing your touch in this century-old bed.
Feeling the warm incredible softness of your skin,
And infinite passion of your embrace.

What a lucky man I am.

Floating above you both, the ghost considers your space,
Lovingly filled with flowers and things touched by grace.
Pictures of faces I wanted to know - things I dream to touch,
Your sweet fragrance and laughter lingering in the air.

Acceleration rips flesh from my bending bones,
Vertigo tears the waking insides of me.
I imagine how it must be to be you, my friend,
And would give everything to be.

What a horrible wretch I am.

Author's Notes:

How it feels to wake in the middle of the night and understand that you really, really are affected by something outside of your control....
