A Memory In My Heart

A Memory In My Heart Your companionship Was oh-so nice Somewhat like A soothing spot in paradise There is such peacefulness That fills up within me When we are together Sharing our company Even all of those times Of no words to each other A touch of silent bliss Would always seem to hover All of the laughter And joyous smiles Was the best medicine I’ve had in a very long while Friendships of this type Come only in a few And each shared moment Becomes something all brand new These things are surely missed Through each occasional spat With thoughts of ‘This just might be’ When I actually lose ALL of that In those periodic disputes If a bond is genuine, it will restore Bringing back that friendship To be better than it was before My Hopes are kept high For this path to not part Like someone – just passing by Leaving A Memory In My Heart

This story of hope and love is so beautifully counted. I like the soft flow to the end. Sunita :)
