Love song

Your music plays on in my head,
calling me back to days gone by,
hinting of old loves,
of pain and remorse,
of dances, and picnics,
and walks in the park.

Your rhythms dance on
in my heart as I age,
a gentle reminder of days to come,
when breathing might not be
as easy for me
as remembering...

Your presence is blinding;
that bright drift of chrome,
the color of now,
and I'm touching the smoothness,
the buttons, the dials
with my eyes looking back on a duotone buick;
on the love in the back seat
that's driven my life all these years...
