Defiant of Gravity

I see you in sleep,
the sands of remembrance collecting
in the corners of my eyes.
        walking across the kitchen
bare feet padding quietly, slim
legs in blue shorts, 
        slipping in and out.
Your face smiles familiar with 
a luminescence defiant of gravity 
as you fall 
        in slow motion 
into my arms where you could not lay 
in the unconscious world of your
        last hours
