I don't remember the color his eyes were,
and barely the sand in his hair
All the lines of his face are
becoming muddled
I have no picture to remember
My young lovers face

Only the charcoal pictures
I drew of his artful grace

He was different from most others
Always a smile on his face
Until one day he revealed
the pain lying deep within

Where is my lover?
Will he always be lost
Or might I see him one more day?
In heaven will we cross?

   It feels a little broken up and the flow is a little slow..but other wise the over all feeling was good. It needs more description, other wise it is just a standard poem about a boy. It needs something more striking.
