For Marion and her Bill
Across the barrier of time
I reach out to touch you. . .
In a single moment encompassing all eternity
I reach forward with my being. . .
guided by the memory
carried forth on a chariot of love. . .
I find a common point where
time and space cannot seal you from me. . .
When I look inside my own being I find you there
reaching back to touch me. . .
