What endures

What endures

What endures
           may not be love
but memory of love
           how one person’s breath
can turn you wild
           the warmth of her body
against yours
           the words
and the silences

What endures
           is the light
from distant stars
           that you observe
on a cold winter night
           and you shiver
with delight
           and the memory
of those dreams
           that hung
upon those stars
           back in the day
