I had originally written a poem titled 'Like a Breeze, She Overcame me...' cica '96-97 after meeting a certain girl .. I wish I was able to find a copy of that poem.. but it may only vaguely exist
in her and my memory. Later, after much between us, I wrote the sequel 'Like a Train, She Overcame Me..' circa 2000 .. the really keen bit was that every line matched, re-rhymed. the only example i
can remember off-hand was the beginning- original ' I saw her, we spoke, she smiled, I joked, we laughed, we smoked... I was drawn in to the moment like a spiritual atonement'... the sequel ' I
love you, I spoke, she cried, I choked, I tried.. but it broke and at that moment, I hoped for atonement' (actually I think It was much better written, it was so perfectly match all the way
through) again I have no copies of either.. then I wrote this with fleeting memories of the original rhymes...

 Like a Breeze, she became a memory...

I've lived, I've loved, I've pushed, I've been shoved,I've gotten bolder, I'vegrown older...

 I create my moments

as my atonement

For forgetting things I've done...

  Life is woven,

and I've chosen

how my threads were spun.

I remember when I kissed her

  I couldn't resist her

and then came a twister

and carried me away...

  and I know that I have missed her

but not everyday...

I wish it was recorded on a DVD

  so I could watch my own memory

rewind the good bits

  fast forward through the silly shit

and just pause in some places

  and just look at our faces

maybe see something clearly

  that didn't used to be...

shake my head at me...

I felt so strongly about

  things that I couldn't get out

and that just created doubt...

but things worked themselves out

  Now, things are different than before

when it all meant so much more

than we could see

made us who we have come to be...

and, though I know...

  I hated letting go...

It was very important to me

and now I get to see you be free

and happy...

But, I will never forget...

  How you overcame me...

Happy Birthday Alena...

love you forever
