Just thinking of you,
of times sadly gone by,
smiling wistfully 
at distant memories
visiting my  heart,
smiling to myself,
reliving our brief story
the one you´ve quit,
lured by other charms,
the one I keep at bay,
in some untrodden path.
You may not remember,
may have chosen to forget,
it matters little, beloved,
I once loved you so much
I tore myself from you,
knowing my time was done-
As our time on Earth is finite
I gave you the pale immortality
of words written from the heart.

Thank you! I have something published on Amazon, a book called "Whispers"(poetry) and also "Episodes"(short stories.)
But I should try to do it again, thanks a lot for your suggestion, dear Nite Owl!
Love, Lizzie.
