Lajitas By Moonlight

My eyes close
Immediately I fall into a dream
Of you
We’re laughing and dancing near banks of the Rio Grande
The way we used to
Dancing to the distant sound of a mariachi band
The moon is full, its silver light floods everything in view
Your face
I feel your hand as it brushes my cheek
Your finger traces my nose…lips
Strong arms pull me closer
I awaken, feeling your heart beating, as one, with mine

As I turn away from morning’s truth
Covers pulled over my head
Your moonlit face is all I see
And I am left, alone, tormented by memories
Of truest love
