I remember the way the setting sun
Illuminated the green of your eyes,
When your tears stained my cheeks
When we promised it wasn’t good bye.
I miss you in the mornings
When slumber paralyzes my limbs
When I awake from dreams and memories
Of what could have been.
I think of you in the afternoon
When the sun is beaming down on me
When I remember your enveloping arms,
Under the cool shade of summer trees.
But I can’t forget your green eyes,
Illuminated with tears of love and pain,
When our hearts were breaking so bitter sweet,
When there was no other way…
