Wandering Whisper (Paris-Plymouth)

Tonight my mind traveled up and out beyond the dusk-filled clouds  

Past white washed walls and rigid antennas

 I heard your faintly whispered name greet soft summer air

I let your syllables travel

Travel toward the Cornish town you call home

Maybe hoping you’d intercept them

While sitting outside on a flattened roof top near the shore

Overlooking the city

Watching a similar night sky

Benevolent and kind

~

You will be gone in two days' time

There will be

No more waiting necessary

You will be gone

But I’ll keep you close anyway

I can’t help it

Redemption has become tied to your name

I weave it into the things I say

Silently and sometimes out loud

I exhale these most popular sounds

 

Nighttime serenade now airborne

Will carry with it

Floored feeling resigned to roam

 

Things haven't changed for me

But I hope one day

They will have changed for you

Cause I care to believe

That I love you

And I thought you should know
