I lost you

I lost you –

I don’t know
how it happened
or when it happened

walking along life’s road
somewhere, you slipped past
me, disappeared in the distance

I find myself left with only memories:
your face, the feel of your hands, your
scent that even now lingers all around me

elusive, the memories, like water sliding
against water; elusive, these memories, like
pictures floating by in a storm, half submerged

all I feel now is the weight of responsibility
for losing you; how did I manage it – like you were
an earring, keys, something – when you were everything?

I lost you.
