Dim Memory of a Future

I will remember you
through ages long since past
Time will make impossible our meeting,
yet I know you.
You are my future
and for that I can never hold you close.
You are the one constant in my life
I never want to lose your memory.
So I will never try to meet you
for if I do, I won't live in the present,
and my soul shall surely die.
But if I don't try,
I know we shall never meet
and I will never find happiness;
my spirit should never live.
I can only look ahead,
and hope,
to the dim memory
that is my future.
