Memories

Poem By Donald Cochrane

I remember: golden hair flying untethered.
Pale face of innocence,
laughing,
talking.,
Slim form of youth, vibrant as a spring morning.

I remember: heart aching, churning,
palms clenched,
sweating,
trembling,
without speech, fearful of rejection.

I remember: hair still golden, restrained.
Calm face of beauty,
adorned,
amused.
Slender form of woman, lovely as a summer day.

I remember: time passing, slowly, swiftly.
Heart firming, steadying.
Body stretching, growing, and the confidence of man

I remember: walking slowly, quietly,
fingers touching,
blood racing.
Body taut as catgut on a warriors bow.

Now I sit in autumn, body slowing, aging.
Heart full, content.
Mind searching,
and remembering, remembering, remembering.


(Lake Cowichan, BC.1995)
