By Mark A. Leon

You are the most romantic ending I have ever known
The rain falling on our wet lips clenched in a moment of endless passion
The music orchestrated to our every move
The natural light of sun warming your skin
The conflict that heats the passion
The letters, the regret, the pain, the times that were almost so right

You are the romantic ending that will be studied for generations

A cure for the broken heart
So many lost moments earlier in the film
What almost was
So many times
Drown by meaningless affairs of the heart
With every passionless night; so many faceless beauties, you were always in the shadows
Lingering at the edge of my unfulfilled heart

The benchmark of this existence
My reason for being
A helpless soul, I was, always searching for what I already found

A wonderful misadventure this has been
After all this time
I know
You are the most romantic ending to this story

I see now, with this dried up pen, there is no more to write
It is now time to live in the moment after the credits have run their course
The part that is just meant for you and I
Our sequel
A continuation
Bury the mistakes
Close our eyes to what might have been

See me for the first time once again
Feel the glimmer that began so long ago
Raise your beauty to the sun and hear the music intensify

Because this is now
This is the most romantic ending I have ever known
