I cherish how it used to be before,
You beside me along this very shore,
The warmth I was given with your caress,
And how you made me feel amidst a sea of distress-
That I am the happiest, by any lore.
My windows had dehisced a weird morning to embrace,
With the air around off its grace,
With no signs of silky hairs breezing onto my face,
No signs of sweet voice that enlivened my ears,
Like a perpetual nightmare- so fierce.
Now I’m afraid; never was I before,
With nothing to pace my heartbeats along,
Nothing to actuate my mind to explore,
And in my head is a string of memories so long,
Vague, yet persistent like a piece of art,
Filled in every inch of heart.
