Remember

By: Nicole Arias

I hope, one day, you will think back
to these moments... when we held each other
and laughed till we ached with joy
and tears tickled our cheeks.

You won't remember- why,
but you will remember- how
we were so happy.

I want you to remember
the way I smiled at you,
like it was the first time,
every chance I got.
And the way I kissed you,
like it was the last time,
every chance you gave.

I want you to remember
all the sweet words I said to you
but even more... the way I said them.

I hope, one day, you will think back
to these moments....
as we sit together in silent comfort
watching each others lips wrap around
...our addiction.
admiring one another as we inhale
...our bad habit.

You won't remember how terrible it was,
but you will remember how good it felt...
because it was time spent together.

I want you to remember
the way I touched your face
and the way you held mine....
when we made love.
I want you to remember
how I whispered softly in your ear,
just to say, "hi".....
and the way it made you smile.

I want you to remember the way I looked at you,
with big eyes and a bottomless heart...
always wondering if you knew
how wonderful I think you are.
And though you didn't love me back,
I want you to remember... how I love you
...like it's never going to hurt.
