Where was it, who was I and when?
A dream, almost remembered on waking
But gone, almost, just out of reach,
There at the back of my minds eye
Imprinted, unfocused yet real.
Was it long, or in passing, brief,
When was it our fingertips touched?
Just beyond reach is a thought of you,
A word on the tip of my tongue,
A perfume caught, a breeze recalled,
A scent I know but can’t name.
If I don’t think about it, I’ll know.
Now it is, what it was, what it is.
I like it so.
