for me, you are always going to be
the dream that I can’t wake up from.
creeping in as night falls upon me
and dancing away at dawn.
you will always be magic in my memory
because that’s all you ever were.
something that I could not understand
that I could only feel.
your voice will always linger
on the edges of my mind.
singing to me of passion and faith
and whispering comforting sounds.
you will always bring a smile
that lights me up from inside.
you made me laugh with a genuine innocence
and look forward to waking each day.
you made me feel alive
like I had not felt in years.
I wanted to write every word
that existed in the world for you.
you challenged me to think in ways
that I had not ever considered.
and pushed me to create outside of the walls
I had built around myself.
you flattered me with your attention
and it was a beautiful thing to feel.
wanted and needed and necessary
I was moved to sing for you.
words that came from my heart
I just wanted you to know.
that you had touched me and changed me
it was really as simple as that.
I thought that I had fallen in love
with you and who you are.
but I was never given the chance to see
if any of it was real.
now you are gone and I will never know
this is all just a memory now.
for me you are and will always be
