Remembering You

REMEMBERING YOU
By Derek

The depth of this realm is simply to vast.
Once I tried to maneuver people.
Now I use that power to manipulate words.
How bright will my light be?
How long will the aches of the past last?
I will go on and shine in doing so.
The respecet that I show myself
GROWING!
The good deeds that I do for others
GROWING!
My dreams
GROWING!

Why does one want what he can't have?
Is it the bite of denial that entices us?
I am strong in saying it was never just lust.
Why did yout touch the beat of my heart?
I struggle to hold onto my grace...
While lying in the dark.
To forget would be the ultimate sin.
You were given to me...if only for a while
To aid in my survival...is to always remember your smile.
This is what's happening when I'm
Remembering YOU.

This is more than awesome, Derek. I don't know who you are remembering. I
only know I wish you had more than the memory. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I know everybody loved it as much as I do. {{{{Derek}}}}  *Barb

Oh Derek, this is a poem every woman WISHES was written about her.  How very beautiful and touching.  Do you read Byron?
