Former Somerville News reporter Rose Scherlis has sent us a poem about lost love. As we all know love often appears in the Lost and Found.
It’s in the quiet of the night,
Kind of makes me want to light a cigarette,
Kind of makes me want to cry.
It’s in my sigh when you turned and said,
And I get lost in you like the rumbling gray sky.
Nobody knows you like me,
Nobody else cared about me, cared like you
When we were alone lost scared broken burning soldiers.
You turned to me, I turned away,
Said I’d love to steal away,
Steal this day.
And I love you
I love your laugh and your abstract tattoo
I love the way you turn to me and say,
We’ll figure it out someday.
We’ll figure this out along the way.
– Rose E. Scherlis
