    "I Remember You", the words she penned
    for me in the very beginning

    Smarter than me and her own years
    she wrote the words for a time to come
    I swear she saw the future
    but I liked being blind I loved her presence, her "now".... then


    Something better than love is what she had to give
    offering something timeless when I could only see past
    the extension of my manhood as it groped for the mysterious
    land inside her wetness


    Smarter than me and her own years
    I know she knew I couldn't be forever, inspite of hopeless hope

    She penned reflections on the paper heart of a woman older
    with wisdom, looking back on a brief encounter with love
    in perfect present tense making past perfect sense

    She wrote "I Remember You" her farewell to me, when we had barely started
    Picture framed on my wall, my constant reminder of wisdom, and strength, and understanding, and something better than love

    ... okay. --- .. .okay.

    BERT - this was divine yo.
    the " paper heart " line just sealed it.
    To walk into a situation, almost
    watching someone backing up into
    it as if they had previously been there --- maaaaan.
    This was divine.

    and I just saw Vanilla Sky too !!! -
    so you KNOW this is playin w/ my mind . - LOL

    this was ill.

    Amazing what gifts will reveal themselves with the passing of time. Beautiful, the wisdom life will reward us with, if we live long enough. There is a poet inside you, Bert. Wow.

    thank you
