As shadows descend on
This room where I dwell
My heart reaches out to
A love I knew well

My thoughts dance and linger
On all that we shared
Our longings and laughter
Bonding two hearts that cared

Did you know how I missed you
When you went away?
It was all your decision
I had nothing to say

I know one day you'll remember
When my name comes to mind
Have you really forgotten?
Or was it there all the time?

Life has riches to offer
Some will fade with the years
And all the remains
Are just traces of tears

Karen Shaw Matteson

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind;
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
William Shakespeare
