In My Heart
(In Loving Memory Poems)

I’ll never kiss
your lips again ..
Nor touch your soft
and tender skin.

Not look into
your eyes of blue ..
Nor whisper secrets
just we knew.

I’ll never see
your smile so bright ..
Nor sense your breathing
late at night.

Not share the future’s
bold frontier ..
Made with plans
we held so dear.

My love for you
will endure ..
Of that
I am very sure.

And although we are
far apart ..
Forever is where
you’re in my heart.

You had to leave
not wanting to ..
Gone to a place
that we both knew.

Was finer even
than this life ..
Which has times
of woe and strife.

The years we spent
I will cherish ..
Until the day
that I, too, perish.

On that day
we’ll start anew ..
The love that bonded
us so true.

My love for you
will endure ..
Of that
I am very sure.

And although
we are far apart ..
Forever is where
you’re in my heart.
