Presence


Outside the window
I glimpse my lost love
nearing my home,
a quick foot 
disappearing
around the hedge,
a presence watching
my every move.

I see her 
again, just out
of reach in the corner
of my eye,
lurking, trying not
to get my attention,
knowing I have
felt her here before,
no longer 
so much in awe  
of her now.

She wants only
to be with me 
in her new-found life,
testing how well
she can make it 
fit into mine.
