Silent love

Oh you, I remember everyday
Beside you, I sit to converse
Without you, tears will flow
If only, time, I could reverse
Today, the first of the rest
Of my life, as I begin
Milestones none, void many
Just a series of has-beens
Little does one know, I
Walk in silent love
Burying regrets within
Hearing you, from up above.
(Self commemoration for the birthday, a milestone one...maybe)
Walt Whitman’s Leaves of grass, 1900
“O you who I often and silently come
