Weathered Trees

Today I took a walk in memories. 
I’ve visited landmarks of significance. 
We’ve conquered the troubled seas,
We’ve diminished the difference. 
The trees are weathered but strong. 
The water still gently swaying. 
I’ve not been here in so long,
But you’re still here, so I’m staying. 
Could you see me through ages past,
Could you see me amongst the wonder?
Do you want this memory to last,
Because right now we’re still asunder. 
The time moved quickly passed,
A laughing replaced by thunder. 
As you walk away, I can’t help to say,
“I miss everything about you, my treasure.”
Could you hold the tears at bay,
As I fight away the displeasure. 
The bridge where I kissed you, 
seemed smaller as I sat alone. 
A twist of what felt so true,
Shadows of the forest have grown.
