Time To Fly

I think of you often
only every other day
and in between lost moments
I see your face
on every corner
your smile in every ray of sun
and then some

I’’d like one more dance
around the Milky Way
with your arms holding me tight
Just say you love me
one more time
before you say good-bye

Your gorgeous eyes
light up my skies
sparkling amongst the stars
I wonder what went wrong
with us
The moon was almost ours

  1. I wish there was a distinct voting mechanism.

    I love the feel of this poem. The juxtaposition of sweet memories and wondering soften the blow of the breakup. Very well-written.
