I thought of you today, and I smiled.
I recalled the melody of your heart,
the lilting scent of your soul,
and joy filled my eyes.
I thought of the exhilaration of your anger,
when I act... not quite right,
and the tempering of your love,
by your acceptance... of just me.
The flavor of your spirit,
filled my very being.
Bringing comfort and sustenance,
to my road weary body.
Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.
