time softens all wounds & heals... if you let it

He really had no idea truly how much she loved him

The other half that made her whole

Forever loving him was her only goal

Amends were meant to be made

Such an amazing connection

He would always be her person to the end

But she was leaving and he knew it was to be

Her wild spirit longed to be free

No words could express how he felt inside

When he lost her a part of him died

He would never say or tell her to her face

Working so hard on her memory to erase

Giving her access to his soul felt raw & exposed

Yet, only he knew

He watched from across the room as she sang & danced

Secretly he loved watching her & hearing her sounds

She noticed as he stood up & his boots hit the ground

They both stood in silence

Not sure what to do or say

The anger was gone and there were no more tears

Only this moment in time that was no longer fueled by their fears

“Tell me I mattered” she says with a voice that had softened

She thought of him so very often

“You mattered” he says not breaking his glance

Nothing more was to be said

He then looked away breaking their trance

She was the hardest hit he has ever taken

Both souls shattered with promises that left them shaken

He pulled her close & she began tracing the lines in his lips with her fingers

Before they even pressed their lips to one others

She needed time to stop to allow every feeling in her heart to linger

This… this moment was all she was going to remember
