    Reunion

    .
    Reunion

    When I reach out to you,
    my mind travels down distant paths...
    faraway places and times
    that exist only for us.

    I follow you
    through the mist...
    into a forest deep.
    Leather moccasins creep...
    Pine needles carpet the trail in softness.
    Branches of oak line my way with strength.
    A wisp of breeze urges me forward.

    I follow you
    along a scattered shore,
    your footsteps deeply ingrained
    in the wet sand.
    My bare feet trace
    the watery impressions.
    The cry of the gull leads me on.

    I follow you
    through meadows of gold....
    wildflowers' beauty surrounds.
    The scent of the heavens
    fills me with the need for you.
    The wind through the tall grass
    sings me towards you.

    And suddenly....
    There you are.

    A welcome warmth rushes over me.
    Remembrance envelops....
    I am inundated, trembling, breathless,
    submerged in the ecstasy
    of knowing you.

    My spirit has longed for this....
    Our reunion.

    I am drawn.

    Like water running downhill,
    I flow towards you....
    Fingers touch, souls converge
    And there is no longer two...

    I am immersed in you.

    It's a good poem. I might restructure the lines the the last half to match the first is all. Bravo!

    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...
