Somewhere My Love

(for Sandra)

I thought I saw Dr. Zhivago
outside the window this afternoon
haggard and hollow-eyed, bereft
of his beloved Lara, and I knew
that I, too, standing there alone
and knee-deep in the same windy
drift, would manage, somehow,
to take one more step, climb
one more frozen mountain
if it brought me closer to you.
