Love Without a Trace

Love Without a Trace

I listened to your words,
I looked into your eyes.
My feelings for you, I could not disguise.

We spoke about our past, our present and our paths.
We did not stop to realize
That this moment could not last.

You held me close and took my hand.
For a second or two you were my man.
I wanted to keep you, but knew it could not be true.

Reality can be our most terrible foe.
In time you’ll forget you ever knew my face.
Your touch and your whisper lost without a trace.

Reminds me of my first and only Love. Great work M.J., your pain showed through what you knew and who you knew you could not keep; and came out in words we all can relate. Been there, I get it! Thank you.
