Memorial for Love

That love I held for you

etched a place on my sleeve

it clung never leaving

it hoped for you

waited for your smile

You didn’t come back

’til it was – too late

“time moves  quickly”

you flashed your grin

feelings still there

sparked to a flame

love at this juncture

would have only caused pain

***

is it possible

the best place for our love

floating on the waves

like a memorial

when a loved one goes away

so this I do

place my love on the waves

you’ll understand

that’s where my heart lives

if you see her stop and smile

please don’t linger – dear

don’t want you to

ever feel – the pain
