You cross my mind at the bleakest of times –
Your smile, your eyes; the way your beauty shines.
I remember your grace and the way you made everything fine,
And how whenever I was lonely you’d be by my side.
In those memories a piece of you remains;
A piece I grasp onto, a piece that won’t fade.
Because in reality time causes change;
Swallows us up into the mundane.
When troubles etch their way into my heart
Clouds roll over and make it dark.
One thing that does reside my fears,
Is thinking of you after all these years.
