They Brought Me Your Memories

At no particular hour this afternoon
following an indeterminate wait
they brought me your memories--I balked
under their unexpected mass, a weight far greater than
I would have guessed from what we shared.
Days I knew nothing about filled your life
unspoken to me even in our happiest times
treasures held close to your mind,
lifetime upon lifetime clasped silently,
endlessly, within furrows planted more deeply than
those you ever let me follow while you lived
beside me. Freely given now as all other things were
while we sailed the curves of suns and surfed waves from novas--
too late I learned all you ever wanted was
just to hold me with our bodies
intertwined root-deep on new grass
breathing each other's breaths without masks.
