If You See Me


if you see me colorless trace my outline.  
search identity between crows feet, my 

eyes begging me shut them tight;  October 
doesn't suffer dreams, so  fold my hands 

across my chest.  listen for a breeze between
stolid lips:   I'll not abandon you.  when 

silent rooms whisper me, prehend the 
echoed history against empty walls.

If you see me colorless touch my face.  warm 
my heart before the evenfall of days.
