I think back

When I think back... I see your eyes on me across the room, The way your lips slowly curve into a happy smile, Your strong arms holding a child, And I think back... Do you remember being the "Big Man" on campus back then? Or the easy ways of the women you've held? The loving hearts that you've shuttered and broke? And I think back... Do you remember those secret games we once played? Or the silent pleas to the Lord that you've made? The loving family you've had and destroyed? And I think back... And I think back to the way things are and smile, And I think back to the way you were and I know, And I think back to the man you've become and I love you, And I thank back...then I thank God.

Beautifully articulated, bittersweet, and darkly romantic, yet portrays a glimmer of hope. Peace~
