Nigel’s Power

By Sandy Lender, attributed to Nigel Taiman


A kind touch on my hand

Reminded me of you today

Soft words I could barely understand

Sounded like something you’d say


The moment caught me so off guard

When I turned to see your face

Disappointment filled me utterly

When I found emptiness in your place


Anger has followed me since

Familiar company giving me strength

The gods fear where I’ll go to get you back

And to what lengths
