Morning comes, so up I get,
and rush to look in the mirror.
Remembering your tender grip,
as your arms gently hug me.
I hold my breath anticipating,
that you will be in the picture.
All I see is another fading vision,
us together like we used to be.
We are in the park on a sunny day,
laughter and smiles in abundance.
Time just melts, when we’re together;
as love plays out to its own melody.
Neither of us want to ever leave,
with sunshine on our romantic moment.
I glimpse again, now we are at dinner,
playing games, as we look, at each other.
More memories come, as I close my eyes,
of you holding me tightly in your arms,
again safely you watch over.
I want to say those magic words ‘I love you’,
but I’m afraid you won’t say it back,
so again I freeze in my mirror,
I reflect but it won’t give you back,
into that bed disappointed I return.
My duvet seems an empty place,
until I realize you were there all alone.
