A Memory Of Tomorrow - Poem by Ashley Maurer

I was so happy when you smiled
The warmth in my heart returned again
A beam of sunlight danced across your eyes
And filled my worn soul with renewed hope

As I walk beneath this azure sky
The whispering breeze soothes my aching heart
I know, somewhere you are happy
I wait alone, watching for the sunrise of tomorrow

These blossoms, born with the spring’s new life
The moments when I can make you happy
Such rare and precious times
Always painting a vivid picture of joy in my longing memories

But what are memories...
A time that you wish you could return to
A place of comfort within the soul
Where happiness always resided
Within a lingering glance and a gentle breath of laughter...

A foreign tear joins the dewdrops of those spring blossoms
Carrying with it all of those times, never to be forgotten
Maybe we could walk together under this sky
In a time when my serene smile
No longer reflects my withered hope

I was so happy when you smiled...
The warmth in my heart returned again
Within a lost memory, that time...
The only comforting thought to confide in

Just one more time to remember your smile...
I know that as I watch that infinite blue sky
Your smiling face will lighten this breaking heart...
It will always be enough
To keep my faint smile alive
Until tomorrow

    This is a poem that should be read first when being introduced to your work... you have some very beautiful and moving lines that anyone that is separated from a loved one can really relate to, and an interesting title to draw you in... you have touched my heart with this... thanks for sharing it here!
