Traces

Traces of blue across the sky,
Covered with fluffy cloudlets
Scurrying by.
Traces of green across the lawn
Covered with flurries of snowflakes
Fallen at dawn.
Traces of tears across your cheek
Covered with fearful loving as
My arms you seek.

Traces

Traces of you across the air
Covered with fragrance so sweet
Loveliness fair.
Traces of aching and longing for you
Covering frustration of hours and days
Waiting for you.
Traces of hope and good times to share
Covering pain, fear, hurt and despair
You will be THERE.
