In the depths of my heart, a memory lies,
A once vibrant love, now tinged with goodbyes,
Smooth as silk, it slips through my grasp,
Leaving behind an ache that forever will last.

The touch of your hand, so gentle and warm,
Smooth as a whisper, it could weather any storm.
But time's cruel embrace, it fades away,
Leaving behind echoes of a love in disarray.

I'll hold on the smoothness of what we had,
Treasure the moments, both joyous and sad.
For even as time erodes the memories we keep,
The smoothness of our love will forever run deep.
