You brought me light when things were grim
I won’t give up although I’m not on track
Try to drown my sorrows on any whim
I’ll clench my teeth but I won’t look back
Do you see the pain behind a work of art
Hidden words behind a demure smile
The anguish inside ripping them apart
A trace of wonder that’s been there awhile
Although one day you’ll forget about me
You’re my heart’s desire, its paradigm
Just another face lost to the endless sea
My face still lights up like the first time
I might be lost in a passing breeze, or buried in the time that’s floated on by
I’ve overextended my stay, been a gentlemen and a jackass, but I have to try
I won’t be able to look back years from now, not cry looking you in the eye
It’s selfish I know, but I love you so, and if nothing else just tell you goodbye
I know you may not see this, but I’ll show you someday.
I wish things had been different, turned out another way.
Je t’aime, toujours.
I hope you enjoyed the poem.
Thanks for reading, and have a great day.
