Thought for K Birthday

from my booklet “words within 2018”

it takes this long in life
to realize [ well at least there is that]
that i
can not give you
that  i can
only think of you
and the light the bounces
between us, hope
that my flame
inspires you
or warms you 
when needed.

that i can
only think you
and the wind
between us, guided
of our migrations,
covering much ground
through time and place,
in the same direction.
