From the other side
I watch you
Never speaking but smiling silently
I drift in and out
Through open windows, carried by the wind
I’m unseen, but smiling
Through the holes on a chain-link fence
Spaces between piano keys
The place between teeth on a comb
I laugh unheard
I love unfelt
I’m unseen but smiling
As I look from the other side.

In memory of Uncle David

I really enjoy your work and admire you thouroughly. I am an aspiring poet and working on becoming a better story writer. Great voice and adjectives :)

Wow I really like this.  There is some really good imagery and it makes sense without having to read it over again.  Actually I did read it over again but only because I liked it so much.
