"You, now"
And it is now, while alone,
that I see you, back in time,
the young man you used to be,
with tousled hair and a smile,
your faded jeans and old jacket,
covering your graceful limbs, 
marble-like skin of sweet scent
that lingers in my memory still...
And it is now, while alone,
that your dear image I embrace
and could not love you more. 
 
"Garden"
Our garden remembers
our long conversations,
our garden remembers
your smile and our joy,
your easy-going ways,
my complex musings,
our days together,
that unique treasure
untarnished by time,
undefiled by memory,
living forever in the air
among the old trees
of our beloved garden. 
 
"Rose petals"
Rose petals just lost
to the passing of years,
to the tricks of memory,
fading seconds and hours.
Rose petals lost in books, 
still keeping their perfume,
scented with sweet loves,
desire and old passions... 
 
"Sunset"
Sunset in the city,
our city by a river,
sunset in the city,
our love still present 
in the old stones,
in the new buildings,
in the tall bridges
over our old river..

In the sunset of my life, I value this dedicated tribute! Whoever inspired it has definitely done well by your memory, & I pray there will be one who has a similar strength of permanence in her reminiscent moments of me when I have checked back into the Home on High!

This words you paint better than a photograph. It can fade as can the emotions of those blissful moments. Your brush never fades. The passion is alive like the memory live forever.

Lizzie, I like the anatomy of your piece - the 'sections' or 'chapters' of consideration in a poetic recollection; a journey back through imagery and emotion. I see this relationship as a crystal prism, multiple facets like windows - every angle a different color, a different vision, a different memory.
