Today, as we spoke over the phone, I could almost see you staring at me with those big brown eyes that I always felt I could dive into without even having to try.
You promised you would try. You said today was the last time you’d do anything to bring a tear to this grown man’s eye.
Today as we spoke, I could hear the sound of your voice so sincere. You promised me you’d always be there
The way you felt was deeper than simply saying that you cared.
You loved me as big as the sky; you loved me to the moon.
Today was a year ago. You left me two months before the end of June.
But this poem isn’t meant to point fingers, or say you broke my heart.
This poem is an ode to a relationship we thought would never fall apart.
This poem is a testament to the fact that we couldn’t test what wasn’t meant to be.
You see, when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, it’s bound to end in catastrophe.
We may have been an unlikely pair, but we loved each other, you and I.
You loved my big belly; I loved your nappy hair.
I loved the taste of your lips, like the taste of sugar sprinkled all over a juicy pear.
Together we were always meant to be, and the idea of you without me was something we couldn’t bear to see, let alone handle.
Our love was impossible to hide, like putting under a bed a lit candle.
We were meant to be forever, but forever moved faster than we expected. Fast forwarding us to a point where we could love no more,
And the hope for a future had been turned to us glancing at the past, reminiscing on those days…
Forever fast forwarded us……into today.
