Not knowing then just how close we would get.
We'd be together almost ev'ry day
For sixteen years. I never will forget
Our kissing at the movies, the front bench,
While "Jack the Giant Killer" played onscreen,
Just little kids but there was love. The wrench
Of losing you, I still feel, very keen.
Though our last talk in person was a fight,
We made up on the phone. Then you were gone.
It felt as though someone put out the light
Of my entire life, but I pushed on.
Each day since I have lived my life for two.
Today you would be 40. I miss you.
