    It was time, better spent, when you were my sky,
    and why was some question that never tempted my lips,
    we crashed, full speed into this love thing
    like kids content with rolling in the grass,
    at last, my mind was thinking
    that I was drinking from the spring life had promised to me
    I could see it in your eyes
    the unfeigned surprise, of happy tasted freely
    on your tongue

    better still, was that togetherness
    that better weather-ness
    that said blue skies
    and
    sun’s eternal shine
    were what we’d experience

    each kiss, summer personified, 100 degrees and please don’t leave just yet,
    we couldn’t wait to get into
    phase 2 of me and you
    but
    it never came
    the season changed
    and still I stuck, rewriting your name
    on old letters I never sent

    We spent so much time together
    contemplating forever that we probably missed out
    on a lot of ‘then’

    and I’m sorry

    i don't know may it's the mode i'm in today but ..... i feel you are finding the words to the song my heart longs ... for ... things i was unable to say before .... God has anoited you with the eye of ones heart that sees tenderness and anointed you with a voice within to express.... beautiful .... you identify with that which is in you so lovingly

    I guess we have all been here. This was expressed so well for us all. There should have been a class on this in school, then maybe no tears would be shed about lost love. But then this is what the sweetest memories are made of.

    This was soooooo incredible a read.
