There are days I seldom think of you
Any thoughts are fleeting and few
And days you’re all I think about
And the pain becomes fresh and new.
We knew our love would never last,
Knew that it was stolen in time,
Despite the fact that it was true and full
I knew it could never be fully mine.
So on the days I think of you
I focus on the memories I cherish
Your love may not be in my world
But its feelings will never perish.
I have no regrets for what we shared
Even knowing it would end.
The joy you brought into my world
Will be a forever friend.
So, wherever you are,
Whatever it is that you do,
Know that in the deepest fold in my heart
My love for you will always be true.
I never thanked you for all of the joys
Though quickly I spoke of the pain
And somehow, still, I hold out hope
That we might meet again.
No one can ever fill your shoes,
It’s senseless for someone to try.
My heart still rests tightly wrapped up with you
In a place where no one can pry.
This poem has no ending,
The love still very real.
And I will take with me to my grave
These feelings that I feel.
