I Remember Loving You

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


I remember loving you,

in ages long past,

in the days when love was something new

and life was but a carefree spree.

I remember loving you,

a thousand lifetimes ago,

the touch of your hand,

in the purple haze,

as the sky turned to inky black,

the stars began to blaze.

I remember loving you,

longing for you when we were apart,

your soulful looks

and tender words -

that were spoken when the fire of passion burned.

I remember loving you,

the echoes of our laughter still resound,

in a time which just as quickly spun away -

leaving an emptiness behind.

I remember loving you,

seems like something out of a dream,

seeing a picture of you,

I wonder if you’ll step out of it,

like in some movie scene,

but I know that this wasn’t a love to last a lifetime -

we should just be glad for the memories that remain.

I remember loving you,

when love was brand new,

when the tears and fears,

of other loves had not left their scars,

when trusting and believing -

were still the key to my heart.

I remember loving you

and now when I see a picture of you,

I can close my eyes and smile,

‘cause once there was you and once there was me,

once there was a dream we shared

and a love that daydreams are made of,

at least I still have this picture of you

and I remember when our love was new.
