Fishing with Sam

From behind a dark cloud the moon glimpses
a bright spark to light the night
while the bats fly out to feed
rising and falling across the path
and I look out into the intimacy of the sweet darkness
catching your shadow playing guitar by the fire
your voice singing that song
breaking the silence of waiting by the black reflections
rippling on the lake
so many nights we have sat here
just you and me talking and sharing
so many nights we can never forget
and I whisper your name
as my tears flow
now I remember
you too, are a memory I can never forget
