Minutes we Spent

Days, weeks, years, many hours included
Minutes we spent above, now saddened, deluded

Moments shared, in private, continual we
Deceived be, looking past I see

From the day we first met
Attraction, absorbed through music shared
Revealing the hurts of our past
Captured, our hearts now care

Days, weeks, in trance 
The unbalance our lives created
Minutes we spent above
Meeting in Glasgow our lives related

To the Island you had to go back
This reality you always said
You knew you were going back home
Knowing our reality was dead

Weeks and months passed by
Always knowing I was by your side
Monetary problems caused a rift
I helped in my wanting stride

Then came the day
The day I travelled to you
You asked so many times
This feeling of feeling true

At Arricife we met
Having told me your with someone else
For the weeks, months, years that passed by
I was discarded, left on a shelf

But on that Thursday, in the apartment we
We released what had happened before
Tears, cuddles
That had captured the Glasgow, thee

Then that call on the Friday morning
Because of the history between
You were barred from interacting
This two who loved so keen

Sound asleep early Monday morning
3.15am, when it again began
Upset, wanting to see me
Desiring two, to become lovingly one

Moments once again were shared
In depth, and loving sighs
Making love for hours and hours
Amidst our saddened cries

We awoke later that day
An agenda of life your to meet
Now cancelled,
Kissing, cuddling, you desire we greet

We spent this Monday in bed
Talking, kissing, about many things
Wishing that we were to be
And what our future would bring

But you had already chosen
On the week that I was due out to fly
For these days, weeks, months I've wasted on you
For your tomorrows, you'll internally cry

    In this life sometimes we need choose but we hope for a happy ending. This is really touching. Reality bites. Though sad ending cannot be avoided but your works give something to think about.
