For November (Especially)
I am part of a whole,
(a very, very, very small part)
of the generations who went before me,
Through time immemorial.
I have known them,
through this lifetime,
for a split second,
out of the corner of my eye,
through a glance,
through a dream,
through a mirror, reflecting back.
Through the kind of love I have
not known, because of my limitations
of being human.
