To Someone Remembered by Herman Spector

when it is in the space of a body
the silence of a mind
when it is night on the earth

i will call for you,
i will cry
i will know you lost.

whenever on these rare occasions
i will be filled with the night,
i will call for you.

in the space of a body
the silence of a mind.

i will know you lost.
i will know earth last

who drinks my tears as rain.
