What Once Was Clear

what once was clear,
in stark relief, with details
engraved with diamond tipped tools, on a crystal plate
the smile, the colors of your eyes on a cloudy day,
the almost dimple in your left cheek
affect, produce heart pounding,
blood racing, trembling hands,
speechlessness, caring, concern
embedded with the image
feelings return with the details when recalling  this image years later,
hand trembling at a gentler pitch,
heart racing  at a slower rate,  respectful of my age,
the color of your eyes were blue, no green, light then, no, dark,
and your hair was tossed by the wind
but was it long or short?
What once was clear is now covered
by loosely woven cloth,
not hiding, but obscuring details, 
that were once so clear
