I remember snow.
It was my first memory.
And I remember sunlight shining
through my window like a fogged dream.
You always wondered how I could smile,
Even through the dark.
Snow was my retreat,
And sunlight my ark.
You started off as the Girl of Scarlet Song,
Because red was the flame I saw in you.
But red isn't what I see in you anymore.
It's blue, with a touch of green,
Like the walls of our home that one summer dream.
It was a glimpse, a keyhole view of the life
I could've had with you.
Now when I think of happiness,
I don't see sunlight or snow.
I see a girl smiling at me on our bed,
Reminding me of the life we still have ahead.
I see my own infinity, because you gave me eternity.
And now snow and sunlight isn't what I see
When I find myself short of happiness' remedy.
What I see is blue, with a touch of green.
I see My Love, My Heart, a girl now forever:

A lot of emotion in this poem. I can relate to some of this poem. Great work.

That's a very interesting poem with powerful words. I like the line 'I see my own infinity, because you gave me eternity.' That's so true!
