Chapel Hill (For Janet)

22 Apr

She greeted me with a warm smile

and soft, kind eyes

to the southern side of heaven.

Since that day, we’ve seen each other less than a handful of times,

but we’ve always made it count.

On the basis of energy alone,

there was a pure connection,

as is if she were one of many

soulmates I’d encountered along my journeys.

Hers is a face that I’d welcome seeing any day

and had she asked me to come back someday to

rent a room from her,

I’m not sure if I would have said no.

In my mind, Chapel Hill will always be synonymous with her;

which is why part of me never left town.
