near

mindful I
of places
you’ve remembered me
before
and times you can’t recall
you knew my face
 within the crowd
beneath the lights
floating in the dark
– another love
with lifetimes
to retrace

the truth
from lines
already made
into your weathered brow
crissed and crossed
a map
along your hand
pardon my intrusion
into futures unforseen
– destines beyond
the one you planned

stars have watched
a many year
in want for just one kiss
dreaming spent
 for reasons still unknown
eternities are painted
to places
you can’t see –
and here I am
reminding you of home
