birthday poem for my husband

Just as we dreamed it. Sitting
side by side, distant mountains
reviewing the hills climbed,
crags staggered over,
valleys descended. Drained
now of color, just the essence
of Us. Together. Remembering.
Being. More real than the dream
lost by your too-early death. This,
too, I remember.
