London

you held my hand
in the crowd
I led you gently

we walked through Saturday
saw the city
opening like tulips

we shared our food
in Brick Lane
Brasserie

you slept
on the train
head on my shoulder

it felt like love
tasted like love
looked like love

on time

someone chose sixties
but each day's spin could have been
played out in nineties

on waking

another morning
not enough hours to enjoy
all I've been blessed with

n.b. Starting with a heartbeat.

In fond memory of Moira.
