Feverish ,

I see your face 

appear in between, 

the specks of silver and white 

with shades of the rainbow 

dancing before my closed  eyes

  in kaleidoscopic formations

swinging on trapezes

with artistic movements.


your lovely eyes

your sharp nose 

lips that smile 


and the tears that flow  across 

as you coax me with funny tales 

to drink my medicines 

bitter baited with honey,

and kiss me to sleep humming.


From above a tear drop falls

 on my  hot cheek 


I let it remain.


You have gone once again.
