(After John Straley's every single day)
Suppose you heard the words 'star buddy'
just passingly as you're walking by.
Or maybe the word 'hummingbird'
slips into your mind.
Would you think of me?
the special moments we shared?
Would my smiling face flash
like a camera flash instantly
here and gone?
Or would the memories stick?
Would the feelings
of a first kiss shared wash by?
Would a collage
of sweet words and puppy love
play through your mind?
You will always be my first thought.
Your smile as we ride the silly kiddy ride
round and round.
Our slow and loving dance
as we sway to the beat
of a song that tells our story.
The incredible feeling
of waking up in your bed
after falling asleep for just a few minutes,
then leaning down
Gently holding your face
Our lips touch.
I know it's hard to believe right now
especially when you are sitting
in your room
with those spiteful words
just glaring you down
from your phone.
Just moments ago
cooing sweet goodbyes,
thinking about the love we lost.
But not every story has a bitter ending
full of regret and broken promises.
Even when it takes time,
most stories end with
