So quick, thoughts of you became a daily thing
morning waking up with your face vividly burned
in the iris of my eyes, brighter than sunlight
filtering through the blinds in mid spring.
And I took you with me in the summer
your face riding the waves as I yearned
to taste more than the salty water.
Dreams of you became a daily sunset
your ghost shifting in winds of mid-summer
waiting for your love to bear fruit.
But autumn wishes dropped dry and brittle
carried by times helping me forget
reasons why holding on to such pursuit
when was faced with my reality.
Now winter approaches with frozen dreams
left out in the cold, wrapped in a blanket of regrets
I dwell for a love in my heart deeply whittled
during the passing seasons of my life.
