Did I imagine you? Sometimes late at night I think I did. Then I will smell a trace of you lingering in the air but it can’t be you. Did I close my eyes too long and you faded away? When I am not looking do you glance at me still?
I think about us back then. Your long, brown hair always falling in my face. Your soft, full lips always capturing me with your throaty hello. I miss you today. We were supposed to grow old together but you died today, all those years ago. My alabaster queen, who made me feel better about being so pale. Your crystal eyes saw through me. You saw every scar, every weakness, every desire in me and loved me anyway.
I wish I could have helped you but there was nothing to be done. But you, you showed me love when I thought I was unlovable. You gave me hope, you helped me heal.
Thank you my sweet woman for the time I had with you. Wish you were here but I will see you again.
