How many years

I touched the substance of your mind
It held me with velvet gloves
Near without touching
Rhythmic colours drifted
Talking was just a dream

There in our ways was an understanding
A lifetime of things to feel
Yet that touch will have to wait
There are thoughts that echo
They call my life to task
Why have I to be so
Though I never let you go.
I have never stayed by your side
I occupy all your realms.

You stand there as if only yesterday
Never fading from my thoughts
Clear think that love remains
To this day and forever stronger
Though you have grown older
There in your shell
As a perfect pearl

As others cannot understand time
We have no time to worry of
A space that is to be filled
At journey's end
A meeting that has been delayed
Though as our time is none
Then I will see you in my now
As I walk into that other light.

No need to call my name
I shall be waiting there for you
A thought, a colour
that only we can make
Together inter linked
for many journey's
We shall have once again
Unconditional love to share

To a memory that never fades, Yours Ian.T

The only trouble with carrying things like that is as you get older they become more important in lots of ways.
Just had my Grandson and Granddaughter contact me I hadn't had any contact since 1999 when my first Marriage broke up, they seem so pleased to find me, so will have to take it easy on them for a while..
Facebook has its good side.
Yes you hit the memory side of this spot on, I do carry a couple of people with me, and as you know I write about one of them quite often as you know lol, the other young lady has journeyed on,I shall have to put some of the poems I wrote for her.
It is strange It seems that I cannot have very close lady friends, and this has been the same always, damn well cant share my thoughts lol
Take care young lady and know we think of you, Yours Ian & Friends.x

is the glue that holds us together. There are those that I look forward seeing when I cross that divide.
I'm sure that the inside of your mind is not so bad, as to drive the lassies away Ian. I mean, if me and Killer can find love, there is hope for you. ~ Gee

Thanks for your visit, so you reckon there is hope for me and Digit, not so sure on that one.
I think it is like working with fish, no matter what perfume you use others can still smell the fish lol.
Yes there are so many things to do on the other plain just glad it lasts to eternity as it will give us time to do all the things we would like to do.
The children have shown me so many things from their world critters all walking together, meetings, and rescues, right down to the unconditional love shown for an individual.
What a great place, but we still have to be here to learn of physical things.
Go well my friend we shall walk together there one day all we have to do is call out our names..
Yours as always Ian.T
