Memories of You

Yesterday I found myself on a road driving south

And a landmark made me think of you.

I then thought of how in just a short time

I’ve built some nice memories of you.


Another landmark made me think of the comment you made

About how unobserving I was – and I started to laugh.

This just added to the feeling that I was not driving alone

But that you were there with me.


Since the day I drove you to Cape Cod,

I’ve had the urge to return there again.

I know how you said you liked being there,

So I went there for you, hoping to catch

That wonderful feeling I had just exploring with you.


You said you liked lighthouses

And I decided to find one.

And even though the day was cloudy,

Thinking of you made it sunny.


I used to have only memories from your neck of the woods,

But since you came to visit I now have reminders

Of when you were here.

I only have to travel a mile to see the places

Where we had breakfast and dinner,

And they too bring back good memories of the sweet you.


I don’t have to go far to be reminded of you.

I just have to turn my computer on

And I find some pictures that I took of you.

In the darkness of the subway station

Your smile brought brightness.


One look at that smile

And it has me immediately smiling back.

It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that

No matter where I turn I can feel you near.

I love the memories of you.



Beating Heart

Can’t you see how my heart feels?

Come let me show you that my love is real

Lie beside me and feel it beating

How it rhythmically keeps repeating


I love you, I love you, I love you!


Once it starts, I lose control

My mind and body have one goal

And that’s to be with you each day

To express this warmth for you and say,


I love you, I love you, I love you!
