Days become weeks, months turn to years
Where is the healing that time brings?
Love found for the first time proved I knew not love at all
The joy beyond words, but pain even greater
A tender touch, a piercing glance, a rare embrace
Private professions of love that must be denied
An aching that never subsides
The need to hold you in my arms
Is like the air that I breathe
I will never know our bodies entwined
What small part of you I possessed
Is now forever gone
But the pain that remains I will always treasure
For it is what remains of love never before known.
