I held you close that cold November evening.
Alone in the country with nothing but the sound of your heart comforting me.
Stillness in the air; darkness all around
I was at peace with you and myself
You awaken me after a long restless sleep
A long journey through the chamber of lost opportunity, romantic plot lines dancing through my head and the hope of falling in the field, looking up and seeing a love before my eyes.
It was you that defined these words of love and forever changed me
A nurturer; a mother; a passionate breath of air
In your eyes, the laughter of children filled the days
In your heart a sensual serenity filled the nights
It was you that unlocked the key to a heart that forgot to feel; forgot to yearn; forgot to savor the feeling that words or actions cannot comprehend
Earth had an angel for me and she slipped through this fragile grasp
I held on too hard; I let go too soon
Forever I am changed
Forever I will love her
Forever I will remember that tiny path of time on the course of life’s journey where I found a girl, she smiled, I fell in love and held her alone in the fields of cotton watching the stars spell out our story
For this is a story of love gained and lost; yet never forgotten
