Amicable Hearts

A universe now altered

since your presence

is ingrained

in everywhere I look

and everything I feel

It’s as though you’re still very real

and yet, it’s your image

that will follow me

indefinitely, so

I’ve tucked the love

that once held your eyes

inside my aching heart

and I haven’t forgotten

your charming smile

I’ll carry them both for awhile

Don’t worry about me

I promise not to break

I’ll miss you, terribly,

but staying close

would be our mistake

When my emotions

have settled

I’ll set you free

and you can look back

Remembering

Me

  2. Oh Lauren! This one is just so meaningful! I love it, my friend! You will heal in time…I know you know that. God bless you….xoxo

    • Thanks, Red, I like that, too, and when love doesn’t last, that factor is most important…so we don’t crumble over heartbreak, but somehow, manage to move forward~xoxo
