Today I Heard My Love Song

Today I Heard My Love Song

Today I heard a love song.

A faint reminiscence from long ago
when dreams did not seem beyond my grasp.

Faded memories stirred.
Those mornings when images of her
filled my every waking moment.
When visions accompanied me as vivid companions
throughout the day – until I returned to her at night.

Now but a dim distant feeling,
a metaphor I can barely recall
indistinguishable in the mist that clouds
those long ago emotions.
She simply lingers,
not even now a gray daydream.
Love unrequited.

But this song which then captured my heart,
remains.

Today I heard my love song.
