    Do you recall that song….
    “Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone,
    And she’s always gone too long…
    Any time…. she goes away.”

    First and foremost on this beautiful day
    I must say….
    “I love you.”
    My heart grows fonder everyday you’re near.
    But I fear...
    Those days will soon be over…
    But I love you.

    I’ll remember the times we shared…
    The time we cared…
    For each other...
    Those are the days I’ll never forget…
    And I regret the day that we met…
    Only to know
    That I would have to let go
    Some day.

    Your smile…as sweet as the fresh strawberries
    In early summer bloom...
    I pray that we will meet again someday soon
    Until then…I will miss you.
    I will long for your touch…
    My heart will ache for your love
    And I will still love you.

    You were my ray of sunshine…
    And I thought you were only mine
    Only to find in time
    That the clouds have come to bay
    And is trying to taking my sunshine away.
    The winter sea…
    And its rough waters
    I lie alone in my headquarters
    Lost without reason…
    Simply caught up in the season…
    Knowing that you’re gone…
    And you’ll be gone too long…
    This time you go away.

    Thanks!!!

    You really liked it!!! I was kind of hesitant about posting it. But thank you. and yea...i was caught up in between reality and anticipation...knowing something is going to come to an end soon..Its like a roller coaster...you enjoy the ride so much and just when you're really about to get into it...or when you're finally comfortable in your seat. The ride is over...Now ain't that some [email protected]

    Wow!!

    This piece left me feeling naked and alone
    in the shower with water pouring down my back
    Contemplating the inevitablility of rain

    You brought it poet
    And I ain't madatcha!
