The Reasons Why
It was the soliloquy in her smile,
The ambience in her eyes
The seasoning in her voice
It was her lavender scented charm,
Her sapphire forged will
Her blissful lyrics
Adding choruses into my breaths
It was the way time stood still.
It was the way she chose not to change me, but embrace me.
It was the way she
Desired to kneel with me at the altar.
It was the way the stars in our skies,
Outshined any debt-carat diamond
It was because our heartbeats were louder than any song.
It was because we didn’t need to fight to be right or wrong.
It was because we cherished the night & gave credence to the dawn.
And in this new dawn,
It was our anniversary.
It is the stone I now touch
My shattered heart guides my fingers, silently
Across your name, carved into remnants
Of our last dance
