Seated there
You look picture perfect,
Meticulous
As if that suit was made
On you

Your composure
Utterly amazing,
The momentary smile
to die for,
You have me reminiscing…
On one whom i had

A love that once was…
But no longer is,
One who once was
Affectionate and special to me
Seemingly spontaneous,
And just like you
He carried himself.
I don’t want to think of you
As a reminder of him,
You are different..
For in my heart you reside.
