Poem: These Moments

By Jeff Thompson

These Moments
I have seen many things in my life,
but I am only a man,
that has been touched,
yes it is true I did not spend many moments with you,
but it is also true that when I did, it was worth it
I can only imagine what more moments would be like
such joy and happiness I have when I am around you
such feeling of comfort I have
I am a flame burning for you
hoping you never put me out
if I chase the fantasy of you what happens to me?
what shall I become?
I will wither away in pain, only to drink away my  sorrows
that would be my attempt to recover the fraction of a heart I  would have
until then, I can only wonder
wonder the paradise I have of you in my mind
hoping it could one day be in my heart
