Finding Ways to Link the Two

You want to know if I remember
how you wanted a baby, didn't you
and the scent of autumn in your hair
I found ways to link the two

I have spent my days naming
and renaming falling sheaves of moons
sliding off and off and off and off
like so many thoughts that lingered

Surely this is not why we are here
with time returning to us in slices
I see that you are still you
with all this time returned to you

You want to know if I remember
how our sweat had formed a handsome image
of colorful human character
even in losing you

So many things intend to be lost
youth is nothing short of past
recurrent dreams and self discovery
and finding ways to link the two
