Always from our starting place

I open my arms and a flood pours out
I close them and only echoes remain
My eyes rest shut in dreams
Only to start into wakefulness in the night

Memories play
Like an eternal double feature
My hands reach out into ice
Into breathless death and hopeless light

I placed my hand upon you there
A kiss on my fingertips
Your cold
The only warmth I have left

Now I walk on
Always from our starting place
Your prayers lift me in my darkest hours
Your presence leading me home

Your laughter
Calling my name
