Today, I remember you.
I remember the sound of your laughter and how the winds embraced it.
Your smile, the distance between cities.
Your voice!! Oh, how much the nightingale has yet to learn!
I remember you as you once were _the good old days,
Today, the night mocks me with long forgotten memories.
I remember the color of joy on your lips, and fragrant lavender on your skin.
Every moment, even if for a minute, the way your arms wrapped around me in love.
I remember you!
I remember you today as I always will, and yet someday, somehow I may forget.
I hope the constellations tell stories of you each night,
I hope they remind me of how you once were, and how you remained,
Your love a gift to remember.
Oh, how much I remember today;your heart so pure and full.
The darkness taunts me with memories.
Our last laugh, last hug, and final farewell;
As one last morning you slip away.
I remember you lightly, as my heart hurts;
and maybe a little clearer when it starts to heal.
I remember you today, as I always will;
and if someday my mind forgets, I hope my heart remembers just how once, it beat in response to you.
