The Ever Quest

Is forever really attainable
I place my heart on my sleeve

Will you still remember me
Years after my unchosen
Time to leave

Tears may fall
But they will dry

While the clock continues to tick
Could we still connect after
The last goodbye

Feelings may change
As the seconds quickly
Change to days

They say time heals
I hope it’s just a delay.


The Longing

How can I hear you

If the wind doesn’t blow

How can I see you 

If the sun doesn’t show

How can I taste you

If your lips are sealed

How can I touch you

When emotions are veiled

All I can do is smell you

Your fragrance envelopes my mind

It hurts me to sense

That life for you has been so unkind
