Forever and a Day

Forever and a Day
I thought I would be with you
In this sea of love, captivating
You were everything I should not have
Strong and distant, mentally unstable, as I
The bond between us of a unique kind
Your lips to mine, in the street,
Stirring heartfelt emotions fathomed
Uncontrolled, consistent smile as I walk away,
You stayed with me, long after we were parted
There in my mind, my heart and emotions
Excitement built, where repetition lay
The constant of my daily existence
Love abound, so deeply felt
Hard to remember each moment may be our last
I would have held you longer,
Should I have known?
I would be holding you now
As I would not have let go
Alas, the future was untold
And opportunity has passed,
The strings no longer pulling me back
Stubbornness streak has set in
Choosing to let love stand
In the memory box, tucked away in my heart
Comparable you will be for the present
Each new person, shall have great expectations to meet
Unfairly you have set the standards high
And I remind myself daily, that our time has gone by
The void I must fill, it is only temporary
Each day will be easier, each moment more tolerable
Soon I will laugh; soon you will be a distant memory
In place of the constant void of this unscripted life
I miss you.
