Just a Poem i have been working on. Let me know what you think.

So swiftly the years have passed us by

An exhaling breath of a lovers sigh

Moments in time that are gone but not lost

Locked away in my brain behind the winters frost

Like a day ago I remember that fateful day

Your glorious image with a smile on display

You made me question so many things

And lifted my heart to where the angels sing

You made me believe in divine plans

And helped me rise to be a better man

Each day I’m in wonder that you are still here

The image of you gone is my greatest fear

I long to hold you tight in my arms

To keep you there and protect you from harm

To have you wrapped in my loving embrace

To hold forever in times endless pace

Plans for my life were lofty and grand

Illuminating the thoughts of this foolish young man

Our journey has parted from where we began

It barley reflects what we had planned

The cruel mistress time, she reared and she roared

She carved up our plans with her mighty sword

I thought we would have twenty years of health

To work and to love and to accumulate wealth

But time is that witch no man commands

It wraps us up in its steely bands

Very sweet love poem with a bitter end but you ease into it nicely so it's not just like BAM! It's a nice balance and i enjoyed the read.
