Home

People flock to your kind and patient aura… like butterflies that flit around in the sun landing only in places where they feel safe and nourished.

People, animals…it’s just something about you.

You’ve long been that space for me.

From the moment I heard your voice there was comfort and recognition.

It took me a little time to process those feelings…

You were home! I was home!

Home will always be wherever I’m with you.

For Noelle

Unforgettable

Composure nearly eludes my grasp

as I enter the ballroom…

There are no words…

and speaking them would only lend credibility

to their authenticity if there were.

No… best we ignore what we cannot change anyway…

Gingerly I assume the proper stance, but your firm

hand on the curve of my back is more than I can bear…

and I begin to crumble.

With an unapologetic, admonishing expression

you lock my gaze and my grip.

Suddenly present in the moment,

my eyes meet yours with a fevered determination.

Flawless and fluid we execute our passion

to powerful instrumentals.

Whatever this is or isn’t,

if it has to be the last time,

what it will be is unforgettable.
