Happy as a Bridge, Now That You Are Back

Head down in it, I was fiddling with the back panel, prying it open
A shadow, silvery, appeared, almost stopping my heart
I looked up, dropped everything, saw the silvery shadow turn into you golden
My nerves, trembling, brightened, “It’s you, really you.”
Your two big beautiful eyes back in my left ventricle and my right ventricle,
where they are needed.
Blood circulation began again. Life awoke again. I am happy again.
Thank you. Now come here.
