On the shores of thy hand

Not on your heart

Nor mind

But in your face


To say

To express

With no words

With no sound


Only seen

In the light that shines

Behind your eyes

In the brightness

Of your smile


The touch

The graze

Of your hand

Reveals it


A goodbye without

A hello

A wordless greet

An end – a beginning

The memory of a lifetime


From there

And then


And on
