My Esperance
I am keeping
my creamy shoulders
polished and my arms and legs like silk...
I will never forget
the extra time you gave me 
when all the other snow birds
flew away.
The times we shared  underneath
the leanin' tree,
soaring high above red rock formations,
climbing superstition peak,
drinking in the sunset colors on canyon lake,
our fingers laced, arms entwined...
sipping chocolate wine.
You gave me time to see your blue eyes
turn to sparkling green in happiness and ecstacy...
and back to blue again
the day you flew away.
I will dry my tears and count the days
until I am free to fly to you, my Love...
my Life,
my Esperance.
