Counting Memories - Poem by Ronald Chapman

In the short time,
We spent together living our young lives,
You left me with a thousand years of memories.

Never ending words to write.

We spent a year, every day, waking to our dreams,
Making dreams of love.
Making memories, we'll always have.

Afraid the memories would fade away,
I spend days looking to Heaven,
Talking to you, writing poetry to you.

I have been unable to let you go.

In my old life,
I count the memories,
I count the days until,
I will hold your Soul in my arms,
In Heaven once again.

Topic(s) of this poem: afterlife, dreams, heaven, hoping, loneliness, love and dreams, love and life, missing you, longing, love

    It's so sad. Lovers separated unfortunately in the midst of a 'yours for ever' kind of a romantic relationship leaving behind a trail of sweet memories. Nicely articulated. Thanks.
    Afraid the memories would fade away,
    I spend days looking to Heaven,
