My eyes sway to the left, so they may catch a glimpse of the comfort in your soul.
Paused is this moment in time; for just a few seconds I am able to see right into you.
silence filling the room with our wordless conversations.
You have taken over my thoughts – have I made it into yours?
Tonight I stare with the desire to know more;
know who you are,
know who you think I am,
and know where we are.
My eyes shoot forward, being kicked back into reality.
And tonight I’ll leave you behind.
Hold, not onto the sorrow,
But onto the beauty of the times we shared.
I’ll remember the long, hot days under the sun –
The identities we created with various adventures,
faces plastered with concealer,
and made up names to tell to the curious strangers.
I’ll remember the dark days, but choose to live in the bright
moments that brought us heart to heart.
Remember me, not for the hole in your heart,
But for the love you felt, even if it were temporary.
For I’ll remember you, and us, and this place.
