it's heart-wrenching & painful
I cannot tell you how much I fk'n miss
the messages & texts between us
cuz all I have left is only the memories
the excitement of our many firsts 
our mutual love of boats & being out on the sea
ideas of how we could generate business
so one day we could build a house together
the conversations we shared each day
leading up to our meeting 
from before the sun rose each day
until the wee hours of every night
we'd banter & chat about the future 
that only we could see & imagine
we'd talk about our feelings &
the love we felt for each other 
nevertheless, we never crossed the line
that first 96 hours
started when we officially met that afternoon 
that first hug & kiss
the one where time stood still
our taxi ride to the place
where we would become one
our fingers intertwined so tightly
holding onto each other for dear life
we both asked each other
would we be enough for the other?
I don't care what people say
I was willing to risk it all
to be a part of your life
our long chat by the waters edge
while we smoked a big fat joint together &
dibbled our feet in the Caribbean Sea
we talked about everything
openly & honestly
until the sun started to set
when the mosquitoes started to bite
we left the beach walking hand in hand
back to the love nest we called ours for a week
I don't believe love comes prepackaged 
with two people being just the right age
or of complimentary values & beliefs 
it happens when it happens 
I wanted you to be real & mine 
in spite of everything we were each going through
you always said the right words
even breaking down, begging & crying 
ultimately telling me how deeply you cared
the first time we went grocery shopping
up & down each one of the aisles
you made sure I knew about Mabel's Green Seasoning
even though I can make my own 
you helped me shop for all the groceries we needed 
you watched me begin to cook
before you left to go & get treats
for the long night ahead 
we spent each of those nights 
tangled in each other's arms
never wanting it to end
when we woke up each morning
it was the smell of Hazelnut Coffee 
before we went to the beach
still walking hand & hand
intermittent baby kisses throughout the day
this union; a divine intervention 
I look back now that I'm home & wonder 
was it the wrong time?
should we have waited?
I have but one regret: leaving early
I never wanted it to end
I wanted to go home
take care of business
work on us 
prepare to move forward 
as one together
I wonder, was it all just a dream?
I loved you 
I still love you
nevertheless, all I have left is only the memories
