For Always

For Always

These shining shards of glass

Reflect the burning sun

That once shone lemon yellow

Upon my chosen one

Soft as butter crème

Between vanilla wafer

Each day was long and sweet

The kind that one would savor

For always

I reached to touch the hair

The breeze softly caressed

Rosemary blew within

Each raven-feathered tress

Inhaling the sweet fragrance

Eager to take it in

Unless I should forget

The details of my sin

For loving you so much

That my poor heart would break

At the mere thought of missing

Another breath that you may take

My heart was made of glass

Filled with your sweet wine

Such a lovely gesture

And the taste was so divine

Yet it had come to pass

That I would thirst for more

Left broken and discarded

Along a distant shore

For always
