Even Today

I can remember the times we argued

They stab me like hot pokers

From a fire that will never extinguish

It burns me, even today, years after you went away

 

I can remember the times we smiled

They bathe me like the sun on a new spring day

Welcome and quietly shining

They warm me, even today, years after you went away

 

I can remember the times we cried

They eclipse me like the moon hiding the sun

Both coming and going slowly

They darken me, even today, years after you went away

 

I can remember the times we laughed

They tickle me like dancing faeries

Twirling and smiling with joy

I giggle with them, even today, years after you went away

 

I can remember the day you left

It both soothes me and tortures me like the wind

Your last words, your last smile, your last breath

I cling to them, even today, years after you went way
