My Silent Travelling Companion  (For KH)

I've kept a lock of your
Hair and some of your dust
As a talisman, protection
From the memories, like a 
Siren's songs that deceive and
You were my True North
My bearings my home, but
Death, envious of our course
Folded you into his silence
Setting me adrift without she
Who was my map, my love
I bring what you are with me,
To London and Rome, to the
Greek lemon hills you loved and
Into the Ligurian Sea where once,
Amid the Dancing Stars we bathed
You are everywhere, my silent
Traveling companion
