I can still remember

I am very honored that The Dear John Show a prestigious poetry show choose this piece of mine to read on Sunday, 

The Dear John Show

I can still remember 

I can still remember back when just my 
touch on your bare skin was quiet enough 
to hold all of your love in my arms under 
the stars watching them shooting across
the skies then falling just as we did for each 
other while wishing we would stay together, 
with only the glow of the full moon rising 
like the fires of our passion that was burning
out of control, late at night where we laid 
out on a blanket on the shores of eternity 
just you and me on the oceans of forever 
where you and I made love until the sun 
came up shining its light down around us
as we were making our dreams come true. 
Here we are today and have both gone our
separate ways as time were never completely
on our side, it is funny how life sometimes
goes for what we believe is so important
to us, all at that very moment seems to 
change almost every day, now sometimes
as I lay there in my bed at night when my 
wife and kids are sleeping tight the thought 
of you begins to fill my head bringing 
back all those memories laying there at 
night by the waters and stars and moon 
raining down around us holding each other 
tight promising to be together forever wishing
that it would never end, then I hear my baby
cry and as I look into my little girl's eyes I 
think to myself that God is wow something else 
He knew that it is sometimes better some dreams 
never do come true and at that moment in time 
we were so young with our lives ahead of us as 
I wonder where are right now so whatever you 
are doing and wherever you may be thank you 
for your time in our moments together for you 
will always and forever be part of me as I shall 
be always part of you.
