About the Poem

A poem about love that is eternal, even when the object of your affection is no longer in your life. Holding onto a love that has become a part of who you are.

Loving, Still

I'm living this love affair in my mind,
It's furthered every day,
Written on my heart,
Pages turning with every beat.

Has it been a year since I held you?
Or just a day, an hour, a minute?
It was yesterday I felt your gentle touch,
Today I saw your sweet brown eyes as I slipped from a dream.

You are there in every breath,
On every sun ray,
you're wound into every thread
of my life's tapestry.
And every step I take is to you.

To feel you, love you, breathe you,
More even than the one I gazed upon this morning,
Enough to quench my soul, at last full.
Loving. If only with my thoughts.
