I Wondered...

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


She walked by me today,

her eyes glistening,

her life within, surging,

and I, in awe of every cell,

felt her warmth pass,

the subtle scent of her perfume,

the air she breathed,

trailing like a pulsing tail of her essence.

I inhaled her,

felt her being infuse me,

and turned to see her elegant stride,

like the rolling of an aqua sea,

graceful, perpetual, becoming distant,

and I sighed,

beauty transfixed,

each curve a symphony,

each rise and fall of life,

a testament to omnipotence.

I wondered,

who she would go home to,

was he kind and compassionate,

could he see what I saw,

admire her,

and see what resided within her,

beyond her beauty,

her soul,

her thoughts of life

and her dreams,

her memories.

One single being in millions,

individual,

complex yet simple,

soft, feminine,

and self-sufficient,

removed from my life,

like a pebble on a stone road,

a thought passing,

a moment of consideration,

a glance, a smile,

a tug of the heart,

and gone.


The heart yearns no matter how old, and in that realizes that although we recognize and appreciate beauty, one cannot hold it within our hands, simply admire it for what it is.
