The Way It Goes

This is the way it goes,
the way your heart
turns in upon itself.

You turn one day and see his face;
you've never seen him there before,
but he smiles and it's like coming home.

You share the days and then the nights,
Then one day you turn again,
and he is gone.

Your heart beats his name
like an ancient chant,
your arms are like water.

You dream his voice every night,
hear his step at the door,
but he is not there.

You know that he is gone
but your heart won't open for the fact,
it lingers in the air outside you.

You pull your scarf closer against your ears
and breathe his name into the wind.
Winter will be colder now.

Beki (1989)

ROFLMAO!!!!!What you all must think! I meant to post only the one poem, The Way It Goes, but cut and pasted it from my website and somehow, unbeknownst to me it copied many poems, including part of the contents list...what a task to wade through all of that! Thanks for making the effort...I have edited this post to reflect what was originally meant to be here...hope others who read your comments don't go bonkers trying to find the poem you refer to...just in case I think I will post Winterwarm now. I have always considered it my very best work anyway :-)But thank you UK, Jim and Pepper for reading.I appreciate your comments.
