I’m sitting                                                                                                                                               on a park bench                                                                                                                              seeing nature’s skeletal frames                                                                                                          all around me

And I’m smiling                                                                                                                                     as I see you                                                                                                                                        lying on a blanket                                                                                                                                  of nature’s shredded skin

You’ve a radiance                                                                                                                               that surrounds you                                                                                                                             and keeps me warm                                                                                                                              despite the cold

And your splashing                                                                                                                               of nature’s skin                                                                                                                                  reminds me                                                                                                                                             of your love of the pool

You’re also floating                                                                                                                                 in the water                                                                                                                                            on your back

On your back                                                                                                                                           is where I next see you                                                                                                              Floating                                                                                                                                           between life and death

The cadence of your beat                                                                                                           helping my comfort                                                                                                                          then bleep……

A watery film                                                                                                                                  obscures my vision                                                                                                                             and I close my eyes

When they  open                                                                                                                                  my vision’s returned                                                                                                                              but you have not                                                                                                                                 and the pile you played on                                                                                                                   is undisturbed

Just like my memory of you                                                                                                               My darling sunshine
