    Goodnight, Julia

    A slow strange lilting tune

    caressing the cheek with its warmth

    notes like raindrops and quick tears

    strains like rivers and breaths

    echoing

    swelling

    a flood of feeling and memory

    so sweet, loving, and sad

    All the while my heart cries, aching

    I’m dreaming, love.

    I remember you

    and that jazzy shade of blue your kiss

    turned the whole world

    but as quickly as the song began

    it ends

    and I forget

    the song fading, I say to no one

    So brief, my love?

    Wait

    Just like that

    Sing for me

    Please?
