As the sun caresses the world
In her warm embrace to wake us,
I held you.
Like a toddler boldly stepping forth
Into the wondrous adventure awaiting,
I taught you.
Admirer, collector, connoisseur of the fine,
I found so much to admire in you,
I appreciated you.
Eyes twinkling starlight, impish grin,
I learned much and you taught me to play,
I grew with you.
The glow of life, a bundle of joy,
You gave me my dream of having a family,
I was you.
Romeo was just a passing fling,
My love was King … none surpassed my strength,
I loved you.
Days now are just empty minutes,
My new quest to find peace and move on,
I forgive you.
Cheeks wet, heart heavy, spirit strong,
Mind firmly stuck on dusty, old Memory Lane,
I miss you.
