Today I sat and thought
About yesterday and tomorrow
A soft breeze whispered softly in my ear
Your name, as I wondered why you had to go.
I watched the sun slowly slide down
Until it settled somewhere out of sight
And for a brief moment I saw your smiling face
Shining, just like a beacon amidst the sunlight.
The vision brought a smile to my lips
I felt a twinkle spark in my eyes
Rising to my feet, I paused and wondered
Whether you and I will ever be together under this big blue sky.

While doing a bit of cleaning the other day, I came across the above poem I wrote many years ago. I came across several poems, actually, from several years ago.
Here's another written during my senior year in high school, shortly after I got 'dumped' by the love of my life. Well, at the time I thought he was...turns out, he wasn't...not even close. Within a couple of years he was just another guy.
Glancing across the room
I notice memories of you
Yet you are not gone
You live, with every fleeting moment that passes by.
As the song would say,
"Traces of you" is what I see
I get so mad
I feel like burning the memories
But what good would it do?
I would only despise myself
For it afterwards
I let the memories remain
Wiping away dust that gathers from time
All I know are these memories
And what I see, I love.

And in case you were wondering, the photo is mine, taken last February inside a car driving across a very bumpy bridge, at dusk. Weird effect, huh? I have absolutely no idea how or why it turned out the way it did. No clue, whatsoever. I almost deleted that photo. But, something told me not to. Camera: Olympus Camedia C-4000 digital.
