I can still remember the day
you first spoke my name.
Like a prayer, like a wish,
you whispered, you called.
I can still remember the first
time you smiled at me.
Never, before you, have I been
breathless. Never before
have I been frozen in one minute
of eternity , deep in your eyes.
I can still imagine the way you
used to kiss me. For a heartbeat,
I was someone; I was needed; I was
blessed. For a long time, I lived
by your kisses, existed by your touch,
carried on by your embrace.
I had never known bliss until you
chanced upon me and fished me
out of the choppy seas. You loved
me, simply as I loved you back.
And we once thought we were invincible
in each other's arms. We were immortal
because of each other's love. Not even death
could separate us. But we came
upon the end of the wonderful journey. It
wasn't death that made us see.
It was choice.
