bound to you in memory alone

the dream is over for you
& i
you slip gradually away
where i cannot follow.
all that we know and have done
will fade and die.
my name will drift from your mind
the light in your eyes grows dim
this last snapshot of our lives
is one to tear up.
my dreams for us are over,
i don't know now if they ever were.
we no longer match up- you steal yourself away
in the dead of night. to worlds of better chances,
try not to miss me too much.
i'll still be here,
where i began.
thinking of you.
