You were the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen,
so calm, compassionate, and loving;
there was just something about you that made me feel so serene,
you gave a reason for living.
Every move you made,
every word that rolled off your tongue,
words that never made me afraid,
but moved me and had me strung.
With every thing we did,
you always took me higher,
we kept nothing hid,
especially our burning desire.
I always keep your photograph with me,
as a friendly, hopeful reminder,
of what you used to be,
when your love was so much kinder.
There’s nothing worse,
than looking in your eyes,
god it hurts,
knowing that the old you died.
Having you on my side in life,
I felt like I had already won,
but now I’m caught in this strife,
and the fire’s gone.
Looking into your eyes,
I could see that they lost their light,
I told myself that it was a lie,
as if that would make anything alright.
I’m holding onto this photo,
because it’s all I have left,
of the one who made my insides glow,
and my senses deaf.
So this photograph of yours,
I hold it close to my heart and pray,
that you’ll be like you were before,
because I don’t want us to drift away.
