The Very Thought Of You
by Tailem R Tynan
A fine layer of love coats your delicate eyelashes,
Of lids softly resting -
Your pool blue eyes I would never drown in again.
No more tears we would share together,
As I once rocked in your embrace - warming in a way only I could understand.
A life only you could nurture, and a passion only you could bestow.
The gentle smattering of your freckles,
Dancing across your porcelin cheeks like raindrops in a storm.
Your cupid lips, always speaking words of love,
Never again to sing, faint and melodious, in my ear.
Never again will I hear the calming sound of your voice,
The very thought of you brings tears to my dry eyes,
Tears I thought all cried out.
Of things I failed to say - a passion never uttered,
Words cannot speak the voice of my heart,
And regretfully, as time proved - neither did I...
You left without a goodbye, without a farewell -
And without ever knowing how much I loved you...
