Look to the west she said and I

Did not question her but did as

Asked, the hill on which we stood

Highest in a rolling field of wheat

Ripe for harvest, beneath a moon

Whose light we embraced because

It shone on us alone, hand in hand

And so alive, eternity a simple fact

We took for granted, our innocence


Still assured in that long ago fairytale

Of seventeen, where time hung suspended

On nothing more than our inability to

Believe otherwise, and oh how we loved

What could not be understood, the elusive

Mystery of that sprawling cosmos in a vacuum

Of possibilities, spinning out of control, feeding

Our desires, lending credence to the mystery of

Each other as we breathed deep the cold night air


Sweet with the smell of her perfume, a scent that

Will always haunt me, whispered on the edge of

Restless dreams, as is want to happen when the

Moon shines full and I drift away to the music

Of wind chimes, blessed harbingers, gateway

To oblivion, comfort of sleep, and look to the

West she said, hand in mine, on that secluded

Hilltop so long ago, look to the west and pick

A star, name it as I have named mine so that


You will never forget me…


As if I could…as if I could.

Beautiful... the Lakota believe that all knowledge and wisdom, come from the thunder gods of the west...

Could truly relate to this powerful bittersweet nostalgic piece, George - and it seems to be a mysterious fact of life that when we're young, time does seem to be suspended for awhile - if only that were still true when we age.

This poem touched my soul, George. It is top-notch and absolutely beautiful. Your images are so strong that I felt as though I were she, finding that perfect star and naming it in your honor. This goes into my library.
Take care,

The depth of feeling is such sweet sadness, George!
Your words are so beautifully voiced,they mist the eyes
and arouse emotions of similar memories in your readers.
Another gem! Kudo's!
