Where are You , Sweetheart?

I heard her call to me
across the distance, time and space
"Come dance with me, twirl in the rain,
jump in the puddles-let's have some fun.
Let us hold our faces toward the clouds,
daring them to quench our fire.
Let's sing until the sun returns to dry our skin,
and roll down hills because we can.
Let's laugh, and play with cheerful hearts.
Let's pick some wildflowers
and
let their fragrance fill our hearts!"

"Better yet," she whispered, "Let's become them-
free, unfettered, fierce, and dauntless.

I heard her call to me
across the distance, time and space.
I knew that voice, for it was me.
"Where are you, sweetheart?
I miss you!"

She called to me across the wreckage.
"Then come and dance with me. Sing in the rain.
Come and find me. Come out to play!
I am still here, my love.
I have not gone.
Let's pick some wildflowers.
Better yet-
Let's Become Them!"
