I believed in the love I felt for you
I believed in the love you said you felt for me
I believed the missed heartbeat of the joy of seeing you
I wanted your touch
I wanted to feel your breath on my neck
I wanted to feel your heartbeat next to mine
I needed what you offered
I needed the feel of you close
I needed to feel your touch. Your kiss. Your love
I needed you
Did you believe?
Did you love? Did you want?
Did you need? I know not, for you left
Can I forget you?
Your smile? your kiss?,
Your breath on my neck? the touch of you?

Each breath she took, each heartbeat felt
Had become a breath she took for him
A heartbeat she longed for him to hear
Each waking moment was spent in hopes of him
Every dream, day or night,
A desire for him. A need of him
Every waking moment became
A thought of him, of her, of them.
The wind, the sun, the rain and the snow
The sea, the waves, the sand, and the pebbles
The moon and the stars all knew
He had become her everything, her all.
But she, she had become his distant memory
She had become a might have been
A passing thought, a blip nothing more.
No thought of her crossed his day or night.
