I hear it ever so softly

whenever I think  of you.

When I close my eyes

and surrender to the

memories of you,

the good, the bad

and those in between,

I remember them all,

and I will never, can

not ever forget.

Those moments

with you in my mind,

the image of you

holding me, holding on.


of the way we

used to be and

all that we

could have been.

It is all

I have left of

you now,

of the love

we shared.

But, then, I hear it.

The echo

of your voice.

And I feel the echo

of your heartbeat.

And I know

that you are here

with me, still.

You are the

better part of me.

Always treasured,

forever loved,

and never forgotten.
