Poetry Break: ‘Memories’

By Jeffery Thompson

                                                                   Water and Words: Ebbing and Flowing

Her eyes would sparkle to me

I only had memories of holding her hands

kissing her lips, kissing her head

my eyes would open, and all it would be is a memory

how powerful it was, was this love?

was this something that people live for and die for?

 I can see her in my life forever, my wife, the mother of my children.

I can see her across the ocean

I hunger for her, to feel her

the smile, the fights, its worth it

her smile can last a lifetime for me

 a lifetime of love I am willing to die for
