It Wasn’t Too Long Ago…

illustration_image1It wasn’t too long ago…
That we met on a bright, sunny afternoon by the sea,
Those beautiful lips breaking into ever-widening smiles,
Those deep brown eyes drowning me in their merriment,
The silence conveying more than any voice ever could…

It wasn’t too long ago…
That we spent those joyous evenings together,
Knowing each other a little more every second,
Sharing our feelings, holding hands, planning our future,
And hoping that the evening would never cease…

It wasn’t too long ago…
That I proposed to you, asking you to be mine forever,

Going down on one knee, cheered by family and friends,
Asking you to take that leap of faith from you and me to WE,
And swooping you up in my arms just as you barely uttered “Yes”…

It wasn’t too long ago…
That I wept with joy on seeing our newborn in your arms,
Savouring the moment, kissing you passionately,
Holding our little bundle of joy for the very first time,
As he smiled at me, his tiny hands clasping mine…

It wasn’t too long ago…
That you and I sat by the fireplace, gazing into each other’s eyes,
As the clock ticked slowly – reminding us of years bygone,
And yet there we sat – in the dusk of our lives – still madly in love,
Enjoying each other’s company, growing old together…

And today, when you’re no longer by my side,
All those memories still keep my heart beating for you,
Cherishing every moment of our lives together,
I slowly fade into oblivion, as you lay waiting on the other side,
The wait, my love, won’t be too long now…
