I Need to Say
I believe in Santa Claus.
These are the things I need to say.
Stars on a June night long ago, waves crashing on a forgotten shore, wild horses racing down rugged moonlit mountain paths-these are the images worth living for.
The kiss of that man I had loved so very long ago, the memory of his voice still whispers through the darkness, through the sorrow of the passing of the years-these are remembrances worth living for.
The crush of sand beneath my sandals, remembering when.

Man with gray mountains behind him in profile gestures to a dry and barren land,
his hands spaced apart to indicate a thought to convey.
His white long sleeved shirt loosely draping those shoulders I remember.
Those hands from so long ago reached for me.
Barren land so far away.
Profile forever frozen in time; I never lost that love I had felt so long ago.
Memory like dust in that barren landscape catches in his throat.
