Just a Fleeting Reminder

Every day was a jewel, unique and without flaw

Without a doubt unrepeatable

Long, sweet ache, light and darkness, joy and sadness… and fracture

She was life, and she gave me the life I needed

It was so sweet to fool myself for a while

But the currents of life pulled us apart as they had brought us together

I was reminded of my duty to be myself

And I left

A little part of me with her

A little part of her with me

Those moments were forever

They never died

And neither will we

Forever apart

Forever one

It was just a fleeting reminder.
