Your lingering

Among the material that is you,
(breathing, body, footsteps)
lingers more, the you that has no name.
Iโ€™ve grown accustomed to its gentle meaning,
sensing you from every distance
not just by your voice.

Out of the abyss that is time
you will be heard in echos,
in a breeze, in whispers;
I shall remember you
by body, by mind, by affection
as I hear footsteps moving on.
