a day alone with thoughts of you
It's always you I'm thinking about,
always you I want to hold,
always you I need to touch.
Always the memories I cherish most,
are those of you.
Time goes by quickly in your arms,
only to crawl when we are apart.
Long days drag,
and the fantasies I make
rarely burn with lust and desire,
only fueled by deprivation and distance.
The afternoon sunshine is warm on my face,
but even butterflies that spread their wings
around me cannot take my mind off of you.
Touches I can't wait to feel,
soft caresses I long to give.
They only keep me in suspense
as time wears on.
The day's sunset blazes against a darkening sky
and I remember our inside jokes
and our long walks
and your hand in mine.
Nights falls upon the world,
and my heart breaks even more.
Memories flood over me as the moon rises overhead,
casting its clean white light over me,
only to accentuate the emptiness next to me.
The stars rise and flicker above me,
I gaze up at them, thinking of what sky
you may be seeing.
I lay alone in my warm, familiar bed,
talks from the past echoing through my mind.
I smile and close my eyes,
your soft voice calming me.
Missing you is delayed
as I lay in the night's darkness,
memories of you still linger about
in my sleepy mind.
I wish on every star each night,
already knowing that only the passage of time
would grant us each other, once again.
