To think that you would not be
That special one to complete me.
I don't understand the reason why
It must be so; a closer friendship
I remember when you made me smile.
Every time I saw you, I paused; and while

Through every minute, every second with you
Remains. I do not regret the great pleasure
That I still hold in my memory: a dream,
