When you fear that I am lost forever
look for me in a crowd
I’m huddled, hidden
between the heartbeats of strangers.

If you watch carefully
out of the corner of your eye,
you may catch a glimpse
as our shadows embrace.

But our eyes will never meet again
unless we see one another
in the reflection of mirrors,
ponds, and phantom children
and even then we won’t talk.

But I promise to listen if you will
to nature, to the rhythm of life
where you can close your eyes
and hear me whisper your name.
