Four Years

Do you ever stop and just wonder
How things could have been?
When we came to that fork in the road
And we had the decision to settle or let go
We stared at the sunset as I laid in your arms on the grass
And before I drifted asleep, you turned to me
Looked me in the eyes and told me 'you are worth it.'
I had never felt that kind of security before
You were the light that shined forward
Through all the dimmest places in my life.
I could not have imagined a better friend
A greater lover, or a more exceptional person
To share those four years of my life with.
Your smile, your eyes, your laughter, your being
Will forever fill me. As there always exists
A place in my heart for memories of you to reside.

But now you are a chapter in my story
And I have to keep writing on.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is about a past relationship that I had that I'd like to move forward from. I'm slowly starting to come over the last hurdle of letting go and moving on from it, but I want to be able to appreciate the good memories, so I wrote this.

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
