Grasping at Worlds

Wait, please wait

oh where are you

I see you as I look away

don’t leave so soon

I can all but just recall

a strange place

I know so well

but not at all

Where am I there

familiar strange

What happened

was it this life

or not at all

For an instant

strangely home

a breeze, you’re here

and gone

Another world in just a dream

or by my side

lost in my own

What are you

should I know

forgotten scent of long ago

or somewhere else

I do not know

I look away

for better view

I just can’t place
