No Music

So so soothing it is
to think of you
when days are rough
as sandpaper

So so beautiful it is
to watch you
on the spot lit stage
of memory

So so peaceful it is
to keep you alive
wondering if we might have
fallen in love.

So so strange it is
that beauty
is the trigger
on the gun of our eyes

So so sad I am
that you will never know
how you filled
my emptiness

So so sorry I am
that our abbreviated scenes
had no soundtrack
no music
no rewind button
or forwarding address—

just a few words
from our suspended smiles
before we passed
on the sidewalk
keeping the beat
