memories

you spoke to me of harmonies
of melodies and rhyme
you whispered sheltered secrets
should I not recall the times
that we laughed until we almost cried
then laughed again some more
ah yes, we were amazing
our lives were blessed for sure

we’d waken in the morning
to the chatter in the air
we’d rise to greet the early sun
our lives had not a care
you always took my breath away
how innocent you were
no less than sheer perfection
the embellishment of pure

still every day that I am here
so are you, it seems
i think about you all the time
you’re with me in my dreams
my strength is in the memories
you left me long ago
my love for you has never died
and yet you had to go
