perspective

over time
I see
time

up close
when it is happening
I see nothing

there is only me
here

but looking back
I see
this and that
and you yourself

I watch you
afloat among
the things we did
and you are there

I see you

I understand
just who you were
to me
through time

up close
there is only me
here
and a shadow
in my light
where you stand
so close
in time
