Still Loving You

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


Sometimes it takes so little

and yet so much,

to say all that you wish to say,

but words remain silent.

How often I’ve wanted to,

tell you how I feel

and still I’ve only thought it in my mind -

sands in the hour glass running out of time.

She was left to wonder,

the day he went away forever,

could it be that it was really over -

that this was his final curtain call.

Do rivers really run so deep,

that one cannot ford them,

from this shore to the world beyond -

standing helpless to wave good-bye.

Can it be that now you can fly,

so much higher than any mountain top,

soar over the skies -

to reach the golden sun above.

How can it be at that final moment,

that words no longer matter,

that thoughts and looks speak volumes -

only a last kiss that lingers on.

Can it be that you’ve strayed so far,

that no one can reach you any more,

just leave one last promise -

to watch over me.

In dreams we can still dance,

that one final time,

that was left behind -

on the day your heart was stilled.

I know in my soul,

that you’ve always been so much more,

than I could ever strive to be

and loved more than I could hope to be loved.

Through the years you never failed me,

that was how it was meant to be,

always stayed beside me -

until that final moment in time.

I could say that the clock,

stopped that day,

but time never takes a holiday

and life does go on.

Now that I know you’re beyond the stars,

perhaps you’ll sing me some lullabies,

in my dreams -

whenever I think of wonderful you.

And when my days,

start becoming so few that I can count them,

I won’t have any fear -

because I know you’re waiting for me.
