From the moment that I met you,
I knew that it was true,
The love that grew between us,
It wrought my mind askew.
I could not understand it,
I could not comprehend.
How once someone so unknown to me,
Could become my closest friend.
And as the times went by,
I never thought that I might cry.
Over the loss of a love that had bloomed,
And how quickly it could die.
I remember the first date we had,
I remember how it made me glad.
For I had finally found someone,
That could keep me from being sad.
That night we found happiness,
We found it despite unlikeliness.
We walked beneath golden lights.
That night ended with a kiss.
Now our paths are split once more,
But that doesn't mean I've closed the door.
Because I still love you despite our troubles,
This love dwells inside my core.
I know this love will return one day,
For now, 'tis only gone astray.
You need time away from me,
"The time is yours," I say.
My faith in us is not in doubt,
Neither is my love in bout.
But in order to attain my spring,
I must survive the drought.
Five months does not seem like much,
But in my heart it isn't measured as such.
The time has been measured in our love,
Not by a clock's tick-tocking crutch.
When and if I show you this, I hope you do not cry.
It would tear me up inside, and make me want to die.
I simply wanted to share with you the good times,
To show you what's gone by.
I love you Melissa, with all of my heart,
And I hope that my poem is a start.
At showing you just how much I care,
And how our relationship is art.
Now I've reached my road's first bend,
Away from yours, it seems is the trend.
But I do not fear the path ahead,
I know they will rejoin again.
So I must leave with one last verse,
Before I cry or cause a curse.
Our first five months were simply practice,
For our life together, we had to rehearse.
