Across the Universe

Across the Universe

The flicker of movement
in the corner of my eye
Warm breath on my neck
A soft touch
against my cheek
These things
Let me know
of your presence
When sadness consumes me
or I dissolve in a meltdown
the house lights will flash
That little bird sitting
on my shoulder
Whispering in my ear
and I know
you’ve heard me
These subtle messages
of communication
Imagined or not
give me the strength
I need to grow without you
for you have gone now
to somewhere else
across the Universe
