Lost

I was laughing
When I stopped.
Suddenly
It felt as if
The world
Had gone silent-
It was just me,
My loud frantic
Heartbeat,
And Her.

 

The same laughter,
The same voice…
The same droll way
Of moving her hands
As she talked-
It was her!
My body screamed-
I waited,
Not breathing
Not moving
Until I was
Facing her,
Until I saw
Myself
In her eyes.

 

No reaction.

 

I was a stranger
To her,
As she was
To me.
Time unfroze-
She moved on.
And I started
To breathe again.

 

The pain
Of putting up
Lost” posters,
Of having someone
Disappear
And never return-
The hope
Which wills them
To be alive
And well,
The despair
Of looking for them
In crowds,
In every face
That you pass by…

 

And the unending
Prayers-
May the Lord keep you
Wherever you are!
May the stars
Guide you back
Home.
