While You're Away

By Fred Appelhanz

   While You’re  Away


Wisps of you linger,

mixed with my yearning

for a heart to heart embrace.


A delicate remembrance of you

is enfolded in the fabric

we shared together.


Still barely audible

is the enchantment of your laughter,

as faint whispers of love

hover in my mind.


A gentle sound to cherish

within my heart alone.


We danced among creativity;

lost in the moment.


The joy within your eyes

enlivened quiet surroundings.


You gave me precious gifts

to comfort me while you’re away.
