I gaze at your picture and I let myself sigh.
You shout at me with the flash of your smile.
Memories we shared dance in my head
and I find myself drowning in the ocean of my tears.
We were happy together and lived in each other's light.
I can still feel your head laying upon my shoulder
while you wept about a fear that you could not understand.
Did you know that your smile would soon disappear?
I am left missing you
with only our photographs
to remind me of the couple
that we once were.
