by Peggy Carter

from beyond this world I see
you seeing

you gaze from behind glossy shades
I see my reflection as I
stand before you
holding my camera
snapping your photo

but you have walked beyond
where I still exist

my heart holds the photo close
you walk in my dreams
the dividing line between this world
and the next
and you are here with me
once again
