bitter sweet

" so it looks as if i'm left here alone
with my thoughts once again
for being up all night tends to leave
a mind to wander
and with your return just short of reality
little else has been on my mind
(surprisingly)
the anticipation leaves my heart anxious
with wonder and excitement

just to see you again
(your smile, your eyes, your...)
memeories of the past come flooding back
and bring a sweet, but short lived
smile to my face
and a warmth to my heart

the pictures i have of you
have become old and faded -
i guess it's about time
for some new ones -

yet, all the new and exciting
pictures - well they last a while -
will eventually fade and distort with time
and i will again be reminded
of how very far apart we
really are"
