I was unable to see

The morning thru your eyes,

To fit the time in a painting

And lock him out in one of your museums.


I was unable to cover

Your dusty beauty

In a few antiquities that

I bought when I left


I was unable to keep your past

Over my present

For just one more moment,

I was unable to bring a piece of you

Home, with me.


I was unable to print

Your overwhelming beauty

Over my retina

And make it last forever.


Now, I’m just unable

To remove you from my memories

And bring you to life.

Don't be selfish, share this with your friends
