I Remember You - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

I remember you,
Like now that I'm all alone
watching the coming waves that
seem to be lively and are
wanting to land
Where I stand in silence.

The world is quiet beneath the
serene sky
The melodious wind blows
obsequiously
Like the former you who were so
gentle to me
You were the tranquility of my
mind and my feeling.

The water is cold when it
touches me
It's so sublime to my body and soul
Like your lips that I always long
for,
My happiness that I earnestly
desire.
I remember you in this very
moment
When the birds are up in the air
Their singing is music to the ears
Like your voice that brought
soothing melody.
I remember you in this very
hour
How can I forget your memory?
When my treasure is your image
That I keep within my heart and
my mind!
