With Me



author's note:

Now slides the silent meteor on, and leaves
A shining furrow, as thy thoughts in me.
                  -- Tennyson


WITH ME

I walked with her
though she ascended
a hill many miles
away from mine

so she remained
a silhouette in profile...

until in the flare
of a golden red sunset
her image abruptly flashed up
and I witnessed her true glory...

that stunning vision
always present in my memory
keeps her with me--

now in the night, that light
walks with me still.
