To remember you by.

Waves of the South Atlantic Great, tango, and sweat.

The memory of my first sweetheart... The color of her caramel eyes,

her hair flowing in the breeze

with the song I hear her sing,

on her wild and hungry lips.

Quantum-leap to a moment of magic and relive all again,

like in a lucid dream.

I long to see you again

and look up to your skies

searching for memories,

and with moisture in my eyes, recalling them.

My soul never left you,

and my spirit keeps going back.

You are all of me, piece by piece, cell by cell, tear by tear.

In the mental space where memories reside,

you are permeated above the rest,

without the need for photographs,

without the need for someone else.

And you were always there,

with all the beauty you were gifted with

and the grandeur I left behind.

Is there a simpler way to say I love you a thousand times?
