Songs That Remind Me Of You

 

Songs that remind me of you.

In my heart and through my senses.

The hand that always receives mine,

night into day.

Always ready, always real.

 

 

Songs that remind me of you.

With your dancing limbs and all the fun of the fair.

The memories that live within.

Belly laughs and knowing glances. 

Your hand against my cheek in the birthing room.

 

 

Songs that remind me of you.

The movement of your character through the seasons.

Seeing myself reflected back in you.

To share our bed, to talk of the times before,

To live in mutual content amongst each other.

 

 

Songs that remind me of you.

Silently observing ourselves together in peace. 

The breath of our son.

Simply knowing you will be home soon.

The space between us and the bridges that join.

 

 

Songs that remind me of you,

Looking at each other, 

listening and saying yes.

 

These are the songs that remind me of you.
