The Memory

Another day without your warm smile. Another memory retrieved from decades ago. These thoughts comfort me in my worst moments; but you will never know.

I close my eyes, take a breath trying to retrieve the feeling of your embrace. I have always known; that you were my person.

I didn’t feel worthy of it so I sabotaged it all. I have expressed my regret to you but it is not enough. I should be happy that after all of these years you have lived a good life with another. It does not.

Some things are lost forever. The essence of it remains with me in every act I take and word I speak. Like a secret I keep to myself because to verbalize it would be inappropriate. Before I rest my head at night I say a prayer for you, for them and for what we used to be.
