Five years of memories
Of a life I once had
Lay dormant in cardboard boxes.
While I now make plans for a future without you.
I put on a brave face
That I'll be alright
Without your touch.
When inside I am unsure that I will love again.
Cried out, I persevere,
As I know I have to do
For my peace of mind
Though I know that many sleepless nights await.
I am comforted by thoughts
Of better times shared
Of laughs and comfortable silences
And wish that were enough to keep us together.
For now I have my memories
Of loving and laughing with you
Till eventually my heart hurts less.
Memories stored away in cardboard boxes.
