Close your eyes and see

Close your eyes
and say what you see
in the light of the darkness

the light stored
in our reflections
in our memories

the light that brought us
through the day and
into the night

your body built
from golden light
that moved your muscles

that pursed your lips
into the pout
of a long sweet kiss

say that the light
never dies
the energy

that drove your life
part of which you shared
part of which

remained secret
love was the gift
you granted

love was the life
you eventually
withdrew

sorry amounts
to nothing more
than words

and words
will not do
not now or ever
