When I Think Of You Now

When I think of you now
I remember
the curve of your back
and your scent on my pillow
after you'd gone.

Of all the places I've ever been
Your body was the most inviting.
Every time
we traveled back to each other
was like coming home.
We never needed words,
no apologies or promises;
Just a single touch,
an open heart and open arms
to welcome us back.

And now there are no words
To say the way it really was.

When I think of you now
I know
that love is only the hope
of finding my way home
to the curve of your back.

Beki (1989)
