    {from a female perspective}

    there was a chill that day
    the clouds were gray
    in november
    HELLO saw us in december,
    conversating
    and january dating
    {starting with dinner for two
    ...just me and you}

    do you remember?

    yet, here
    ...fresh off the start of
    september
    pain overshadows that cool
    november day

    silent tears
    swelled
    fell
    where joy once dwelled
    my heart
    to this hell
    i surrender

    WELL...
    do you remember

    do you remember
    the image of you in my eyes
    that helped me
    ...realize
    all the things i'd missed
    all the love i had to share
    a woman's touch to give
    a love-filled heart to bare
    ahhhh.....

    YOU begged for that day
    ...that moment.

    do you remember?


    p.s. i won't let the pain of not having you overshadow the joy of
    having been with you...and all the wonderful times we shared. always
    know that i love you...i will always love you...and you will forever be
    etched in my memory of today.


    all our tomorrows
    ...our hopes and dreams
    washed away by the
    THIS COULD NEVER BE
    realization
    on the last day of our
    togetherness

    {forever was short this year}

    do you remember

    the plans we laid
    ...promises made
    on that forever day
    when LOVE was made
    {TO HAVE AND TO HOLD}
    i laid
    ...in your GENTLE embrace

    do you remember

    do you remember
    november
    when first we met
    or january
    when i gave my heart for you to carry
    to the doorway of happiness
    lest you forget
    {I PLEDGED MY HEART TO THEE}
    that you might one day marry me
    that i might provide lasting happiness
    and share the truth
    of our togetherness

    do you remember

    i don't

    all i'll remember
    is that day in JULY
    when you walked away
    no explanation
    WHY
    after a weekend of bliss
    you left me without a kiss
    wounded
    feeling the pain of this
    {bad moments are all we remember}
    {i guess}

    no...

    i won't remember
    the laughter we shared
    the love we had
    the day we met
    all this...i'll forget
    but no...not that day in july
    when all that was left
    is a mournful goodbye
    ...saddened
    ...painful
    ...ironic
    {goodbye}

    i watched
    without action
    not reacting
    as the disposal of dreams
    devoured our TOMORROWS

    our FUTURE
    raced down a drain of NEVER AGAIN
    all traces of YESTERDAY
    washed away
    by teary raindrops
    that wouldn't stop
    as hope retreated from the doorway of happiness
    i know not how to handle this
    how did i get in this mess

    do you remember?

    Great one to bring back, Rich, this sure didn't get enough luv. Something this intense cannot be forgotten no matter how much one tries, feelings like these make a ever lasting impression on the soul. This scribe was intense.
