I guess you  never knew,

the long hours of the night

stretched into brisk dawns,

the hours I waited for you

peering into your absence,

the times I thought of you

while walking among crowds.

I guess you just didn´t know

my heart was so full of you

all your loves became mine,

my desire shaped by yours,

my memory embellished

by our brief time together.

I guess you´ll never know

I still love you, body and soul

and celebrate your existence,

How fortunate that person is or would be, to have someone like you so loyal, so dedicated and devoted.

It's amazing how much your talent has developed over time, Liz. You focus on the things poets see and bring them to those who are oblivious.

"Peering into your absence" is by far my favorite line in this piece - such a powerful image that encompasses the theme and essence of the poem.
