i wish to adorn you
with an array of flowers
in all their colors
and with sweetness
of dark brown chocolates
or showers of soft falling rain
when it is warm outside to play
i wish for moments
to be distilled in patches
of when there was a path where
warmth was the extension
of mutual affection
when all was well
even when stacks of paper
and the weight of scribbled notes
were tasks carried out
in effortless manner
but as bright are smiles
that would extend joy to empty rooms
are now but dim and pale
extensions of what
has been this soul’s garments
it breathes
but it is more so
