I Spent the Weekend with You

I Spent the Weekend with You

By Mary J. Winters-Meyer.

I spent the weekend with you.
Learning your tastes and passions,
Discovering your expressions,
Words on a screen and pictures online
provide a window into your life.

I spent the weekend with you.
Your voice on the phone,
The laughter we share,
My mind conjures the gleam in your eye,
the tilt of your head.

I spent the weekend with you.
I awaken to thoughts of you.
I can’t wait to greet you again.
I drift to sleep, imagining your arms around me,
holding me close.

I spent the weekend with you.
Our eyes never met.
Our hands never touched.
And yet I felt as close to you
as if we were standing heart to heart.
