Your face
key to my past
Each expression
an experience portrayed
Memories abound
as I look at you
The goodbye
coming all too near
No image
can capture this air

My memoirs
about to be lost to fire
You left
my future is lost
I ache more
so is my past
I stare
wanting to preserve you
My guide
to go down the memory lane

  4. A little hasteful to burn down the memoirs, isn't it when it could have been a fine companion for lifetime? Nice poetry.

  5. Nice poetry. I like the line "The goodbye coming all too near No image can capture this air". It says so much.
