SOMETIMES - a poem...

Sometimes

The hurt of my whole life
comes upon me unawares.
A certain song or a fragrance
on the late winter, early spring air

And like a zephyr
it envelops me.
This feeling of loss,
and grief,
 and love, and

   joy,

and peace.

All at once.

    Sometimes

But always  a woman 's voice singing.
And always woman's perfume.

Always.

Unbearable.
