The One Nearby

by Anthony Perdue

She is walking with the Grim Reaper

Telling him her story,

When she finishes she turns to him


" Have you ever felt anything, like love?"

" Yes," He replies " I have."

He tells her about the one nearby

" I call out to her"

Her voice refreshing to his weariness

" Where are we going?"

" Into the presence of your shadows."

The one nearby smiles, " Someone remembers me."

" We follow the past."

During their visits the one nearby reflects

The look of long traveling

They return and once again

The one nearby is silent

" Have I ever felt anything, like love? Yes, I have."
