Because of you,
she smiles a Mona Lisa smile
in quiet moments,
for no apparent reason.
Because of you,
hers is the light heart they envy
in all her moments,
for the obvious reason.
Because of you,
she sees color where there is none,
from a cabin that smokes
through all of her seasons.

That's just about the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me, Lori Rhoden. You and I can't see or touch each other either, my friend, but I know you know a hug when you feel it...

...just bein' Bluesy

I am not up on the latest in the previous comment but it sounds very loving.
Love the Mona Lisa reference, kind of sets it all up, the mystic smile and what really is behind it.
Great read!

Eric

true love never looks after it's own interests
