I am breath
against the branches
light across the green
ten thousand other mornings
save for thee

I am waves
upon the water –
tiny shells beneath your feet
warmth that keeps a memory
of home

I am the first you know
before your dreams
are slipped beyond your sleep
a sigh that bears the name
of destiny

I am the reason
you’ve forgotten –
as a nightbird
I will sing
of blues you only dreamed
remember me
