Dedicated to a lady I call 'Elle': 'ELEGY' I miss your soft voice: Your velvety, tender tones Made the world taste sweet. I miss your kind face: To gaze in your smiling eyes Made the world seem safe. I miss your fine words: Hearing your soulful passion Made the world feel young. But you had to leave: Half of my life ripped away. An unhealing wound. I know I'll miss you As long as I think, and feel. You're my missing friend.
