I still miss you
I'm happy that I do.
For amongst those I knew,
I know that I truly loved you.
I still have memories, fond.
Sweet dreams too - every dawn.
In reality there is no bond,
Yet those days taunt and haunt.
I wish I could meet you,
For brief moments - very few.
Is it very late today?
Then even tomorrow will do.
Will you make it if I call?
May I invite? Or will you act tall?
I know things have changed, yet -
I hope you wouldn't find fault.
A moment of happiness - that I saw you for true.
A memory of a man, I knew for a week - will do.
Could you spare that time? Maybe an hour or two?
That'll keep me happy - for life otherwise seems blue.
Will your brown eyes flash the way they did?
Will you speak with the charm you hid?
Will you smile in your trademark wit?
When you see me, will your face get lit?
Can we hold hands?
Or can we just stand?
May I smell your cologne?
May I take a snap?
Can I know your number?
Can we still talk?
Or have I sinned beyond limits?
Or have years built walls?
I will slip away as I came.
I will not cry, nor will I blame.
I am just a soul - a helpless dame,
Who, without you, feels so lame.
