What We Knew Then

I wish
you
were my friend
my confidant
lover
the one
that would
hold me close
when the wind
doesn’t blow
the one
that would keep
the sails full
even though
all odds
are against us
and when
the shadows
from a dark past
come to surface
you alone would
illuminate my senses
clearing the fog
bringing sanity
back to port
safe haven in love
and wisdom
I wish you
had a vantage point
beyond what is seen
from a flat line
spaces never exist
unless we
create them
I wish you
knew now
what we knew then…
