Our Life - Poem by Jesus James Llorico

'As I lay down in my bed
I tried to memorize in my mind
the last time I saw you
years and years ago
thinking of the time
when we're young and innocent
not even knowing the beauty
of love's first kiss
the sweetness of the first embrace
and the laughter in the street
that we live life like we own it
always cheerful and happy
like the glittering stars
in the midnight sky
and that life seems too long
for us to get old...

now I'm looking for words
in the dark clouds
for what's been beautiful before
is no longer admired
and our time has grown silent
as we became satisfied
being at the background
and as we go down the hill
all the laughter
the old love letters
those flowers, and the songs
all will become part
of what we used to have
in our own little world
of fun and loving memories
when we are still one...

as I get out of bed
looking at the streetlights
and the moonlit skies
seeing a young couple
holding hand in hand
I just close the curtains
tried to get some sleep
and leave the world
on their own.'
