Remembering you

On a cool mid summer night
under the moonless skies
I sit outside and wonder
If you were ever my prize

You used to be my endless joy
I loved you in every fashion
your embrace was heaven to this boy
you were his only passion

We shed many skins and layers
We shared fights and prayers
We lived and loved, we kissed
Our beautiful times together, I dearly missed

Times changed, but my love never did
I stood by you in every bid
You had me wrapped around your finger
Good or bad, I'd still linger

Your face still shines in my dreams
many years passed, many states apart
Your memory is one that never leaves
your sweet love will forever fill my heart

*To El, wherever you are

El, is short for Eleanor. I wasn't using initials or anything like that. We were engaged many years ago, and it just didn't work out. Everything has to end sometimes. Thank you.

many years ago? and she still exists in ur thoughts, whallahi lucky her.
i wish i had the same , they say life is easier when it's twos .

We will never meet or be together again. It'll never work out. This wasn't about hoping to meet someone again. It was just a simple rememberance of someone who used to be very special in my past. Our past will always be with us, and we all rememeber the special people we used to know. I'm sure you had the same, and will in the future. This wasn't meant to be the way most people thought of it. It's just a simple memory of good times gone. Don't give up. You are special no matter how bad you think your life is going.
