    Today…
    I will pretend
    that you are here
    holding my hand
    as we walk through
    pathways of life
    carving our names
    into wet cement
    as we're molded
    together as one

    Tonight…
    I will pretend
    that I’m laying
    in your shadow
    absorbing the warmth
    from your body
    and feeling the
    rhythm of your heart
    beat against my chest
    as we'll dream together

    Tomorrow…
    I will pretend
    that my smile is real
    and my tears are joyful
    tunes of the blues
    will be up tempo beats
    the earth will be my stage
    and I will dance my way
    through the day
    pretending to be happy
    with out you

    it's so sad,
    to have to pretend.
    bcuz u have lost a loved one,
    or a friend.
    but 1 day,
    he will return.
    u were faithful,
    but 1st they must learn..................(it takes time)(good flow)

    Thanks Reason, I write for people to notice my writing skills not for them to take things so personally, so thank you so much for saying its beautiful... i challenge myself in different roles, which i think all poets should try doing, i dont write my diary, again thanks!
