Mine For Today

I can see you in my memories,
I can see you in my past.
But when I look to the future,
I only envision you last.

Maybe the years will pass us,
And we’ll stay where we are.
Time will fly right by us,
As long as you don’t go too far.

We’ll keep spending time,
Making every moment right.
Why would I need to move on,
When I’ve always got you in sight?

Let’s just stay together,
And not worry about what’s ahead.
We’ll never fight, worry or cry,
But smile and love instead.

We’ll stay frozen in time,
Only you and me.
We’ll do everything and we’ll do it all,
Until it’s time to be set free.

Then time will pass and we’ll move on,
And we’ll begin to drift away.
It’s okay if you’re not in my future,
As long as I have you today.

Your poem knock me right in the heart. I felt it deep inside like if you were describing me and my partner.

hey!  you commented on my work a long time ago, and i forgot to return the offer!  and i would appreciate it if you would look at my recent additions.  i also, enjoy reading constructive critisism.  (and, of course, praises!!:)

i thought this one was very insightful.  i loved the rhythm to it.  i always wish i could do that, but all i can do is free verse.  I loved the line, "We'll say frozen in time," wow!  i was blown away.
