My Soft-Spoken Memories

I drew a blank
A line down the middle of the sheet
Your eyes were closed,
Softly deep in sleep
I remember the way your lips felt
When I gently traced your smile
I remember the way you smelled
It changed once I think

I remember the late night calls
Where I used my mom's cell phone
For hours upon hours
I remember the tears I shed
Lying my cheek on your shoulder
It was a great view of your neck
I remember the way you defended me
When people taunted with their lies
I remember how it felt to be safe
All wrapped up, warm in your arms
I remember the hours
We spent together, insurmountable
By far and all
No one will ever mean as much to me
As you did before I fall

But when memories and letters
All that I have left,
Old words whispered in my dreams;
Why is it surprising
That all I can do is cry
And wait for life to fade me away?
You were all I had
And I was your love song

I remember the frogs
I could never get you to kiss
I remember the tree
I could never get you to hug
But I remember me
And how you never wanted to let go
And how I was an anchor for you
In your life so long ago
I remember Ky...
I remember that time
When things were simple
When things were new

But mistakes we made
Keep us apart
But you will always be
Kept close inside my heart

Wow! This is amazing! Your words are PERFECT. Your words sing... it's beautiful (: Just a question... is this based off of the book Matched? The name Ky made me wonder... Could you check out some of my work and rate/comment? I'd really appreciate it!
