We danced, we loved.

We danced, we loved and you never departed my heart

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


Old poetry with a re-write


  We danced , loved and you never departed my heart.

I’m 58-year-old.

I don’t believe I’m wiser than when life was to be lived

and challenged.

Time is moving so quickly. Old dreams and wishes appeared in my mind.

I want to go back to Monterey and sit upon the sand and

I would play some Leonard Cohen, Nick Cavea, P.J Harvey and

drink some sweet wines and dream of you. 

We allowed our lives to become apart.

You went on  to travel the world and  I was left wishing for you.

In sweet dream I dream I never stop loving you and celebrating being alive.

I see us with friends.

Dancing and holding so tightly by the lights of the Monterey night.

I wonder do you ever think of me?

Did you find someone to light up your wild and beautiful spirit?

I close my eyes.

Remember our long sweet kisses leading to our bodies interlocked till the morning light.

We walked the beaches of Monterey for 6 months.

Two hands and hearts holding tightly for we knew our time to dance, love

and  celebrate being together would be but a moment in a life.

I don’t feel sadness for the sweet memories of you still warm up my old heart today.

I wish one day to find you. Tell you thank you for teaching me love

and how to  dance by the light of the Monterey moon and celebrate being alive.
