We can't always be with the one we love, yet sometimes if you close your eyes, you can feel them nearby by remembering the things you did together. Close your eyes today and remember. Make the passion come alive that you once shared with the love of your life. For in our memories...love always survives.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems

Close Your Eyes
I can't be with you today
but if you close your eyes and think;
I'll be beside you in the kitchen
wearing your shirt - standing by the sink.

I'll be with you in the bedroom
waiting quietly on your bed;
Just close your eyes and think of me,
relive those memories in your head.

I'll stand by you in the bathroom,
an unlikely place to meet;
I'll smile at you so playfully
as I let you brush my teeth.

I'll be your light in the darkness,
shining steady through and through;
You only have to watch it glow
to know I think of you.

I'll be the music that you listen to,
I'll be there in every song:
I'll laugh with you and sing with you,
and comfort you when your day's gone wrong.

I'll be the wind that ruffles your hair,
I'll be that warm embrace;
I'll be the hand on your shoulder,
I'll be the tender touch on your face.

I'll be the clock gently ticking,
reminding you of the times;
We've shut the rest of the world outside
we're in our own world - yours and mine.

I'll be the moon as it dances
on the water cold and still;
For I have loved you always
and I know I always will.

Though you may not see me physically
as you live your life today;
Just close your eyes and think of me
I will not be far away.

    Although the woman I met in ICQ and I had our civil wedding two weeks ago, we are not able to be together forever yet. That will only be in June. You probably can understand why your beautiful poem is so special for both of us.

    You could tell that she felt very deeply about the person she was reaching out to. I've never knew that there was someone out there that could express, not only their feelings, but help someone else recognize how they feel also.!!!!!
