    I remember
    Candlelight dinners
    Over looking the harbor
    At Santa Barbara
    As the moon’s glow
    Shimmied along the ocean’s ripple

    I remember

    Midnight beach walks
    And
    Long
    Romantic talks
    That led to
    JUNIORS
    One and two
    {the future of me and you}

    I remember

    Playing in the snow
    In that FAR NORTH
    Canadian land
    And even when heartache came to hand
    We could find a smile
    {in each other}

    I remember

    The shining lights
    From New York
    To Cali
    And
    Even though
    It ended badly

    Sadly

    I still remember

    YOU.

    Big Baller, Shot Caller

    U must've been hiding in my pocket.

    I can relate
    to the reminiscence
    of situations
    that sometimes end in hate
    but the essence
    of the best
    is worth the heartache

    Thank u 4 sharing :heart:

    sometimes, i think that...

    the only love i will ever have is the one that got away. hmmm. fortunately, i never HATE...i have wonderful memories of every woman i've ever been involved with. I'VE BEEN LUCKY THAT WAY.

    keep dreaming/imagining/reminiscing on past loves...and everything you think of...apply it in the relationship you're in. NO...i didn't say compare/change him into what was. i said, apply those loving thoughts/loving feelings to him...now.:)

    peace&manyblessings.

    baller,

    this is bittersweet peace....

    and the memories still serve to help us find that "smile in each other"...

    I love this...you took me to emotional/physical places I've been with these beautiful scenes.

    thank you

    a

    memories

    have a way of keeping us sane, and making us insane with the longing. Memories for me have a way of making me sometimes not even believe such beauty ever really happened. But when I feel the way my heart is beating when I am remembering; I am convinced that she did. Once.

    tight brotha

    ciao

    your memories of this time are sweet, yet a little painful..
    but focusing on the things that made us love another always provides us with memories that are deeper and more meaningful..
