My eyes watch in your heart, you know their colours,
Flags that fly emotions as a signal to the world,
A secret language you alone can read
Even when I close them. You do not forget.
You know each line and curve of lips,
You know their taste and torment,
Understand their passion
Even in my absence you will not forget.
You know my skin, remember how it quivered
At the thought of yours, and how it feels,
A yielding softness, pillowing your head
Upon my heartbeat, you cannot forget.
You know my heart, a secret archive
Of experience and dreams, fragile marble,
Galatea, finding life in love
With each shared breath..how could you forget.
I know your smile, the one that is my own,
That stripped the years away from you
And all your care, just children playing,
And your eyes laughing. I will remember.
