More Japes Will Be (K?)

I was visited, as if by spirits
From far away, and long ago
They came to me, as if by fate
And then left, as if just so

With brilliant smiles and hidden tears
Loving glances, furtively turning away
Tight embraces and unsaid sadnesses
And peaceful silences, with much to say

They came as if in a dream
Reality tugging all the while
While we could we did ignore it
And bathed in each others smiles

We travelled in space and in time
Shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand
We braved the elements, adopted elephants
We sang songs and it was grand

We revelled in our spirits
And spirits revelled in us
Poured some out for homies couldn’t be there
Promised next time they must

Now dreams and visions all are gone
Phantastic visitors homeward bound
Separate shores and separate lives
With new spirits to be found

But in the end my visitors and I
Will a little trinket set
By our bed side tables, a Pachyderm
Because an Elephant never forgets
