Northern Neighbor

You will remain forever in my memories

I was forced to shove you to the back of my thoughts

I apologize that the cobwebs grow there

I wish I could polish you off

Make you new to me again

But I tire of kidding myself

I am terrible with goodbyes

They speed by too fast

I never had the chance to tell you

How you really made me feel

You gave me the strength to truly love myself

No other guy ever had the guts to

Whenever I think of you my smile is bittersweet

I can never thank you enough

I hope this poem will reach you

Someday across those many miles

That separated our forlorn hearts
