Without Julia

Without Julia ~

When there is nothing but the deafening silence
and all the tears have been cried
who do I turn to now
when you are no longer a drive away
a family away
a home away
who will fill the void

When the mundane brings a madness in laughter
it will always be you that delivers its gift
When my heart is tired from the searching
for it has been your space in which it rests
where will I find shelter

When I long for just one more moment
of all that is you
that believed in me
and all of my despair hasn't brought you back
This is when I know,
I will have known
that you were here all along
in silence now
but ever so real
even while you are loving me
from a country away.

And when you stare at your new ocean
which is no longer mine
I will be in every hiss of spray
that kisses your cheeks
Every ebb and flow that runs across your path
will wash our brief gift of time across all borders
to reach you,
to soothe your heart in the missing.

Every new paint that pours on your canvas
every new cafe and flower shop along the market place
In all these things you will find me
behind every new orchid you cherish
I will guard your heart.

and one day, sweet, perfect Julia
when you least expect me
I will be at your door
novel and smile in hand
ever the same
as if not but a moment had passed through us.

You are my dearest friend
my greatest surprise
my strongest sister
my fiercest champion
the bravest woman
and truest heart
as ever
I am yours.
In all ways, always.
