I'll Remember You
Can the mind's eye so soon diffuse
And fade a face so well defined and loved,
Now indistinct amidst the unrelenting
Clamour that besets my waking hours ?
Perhaps, in sleep, a soft-edged memory appears,
A resurrection in some distant place,
Then gone again in morning light.
Twin-barbed, remembrance is both sweet and sour,
Joy and sadness intertwined, as were we.
Sad for things that are no more, for moments shared.
Kind loving thoughts exchanged, yet joyful still
In equal measure.The passing years will not diminish or erase
The loving words you penned for me in sweetest rhyme.
Held close within my heart, they are forever you,
A dear and lasting treasure, as your love lives on.
