Basking in the reminiscence of the heyday of our love.
I do not ever want to forget you though we have grown apart.
By loving you, I have set the cornerstone of my rebirth–
Of the metamorphosis into who I really am– and for that, I owe you.
I owe you the moon, the stars, and the blazing sun;
I owe you the earth, the sea, the wind, and every breath I take.
For leading me out of my cocoon and into the realization of my being,
I owe you the universe.
Thank you for being the key into unlocking my very heart and soul.
Thank you for proving that love can be as true as you and me;
And also for proving that love can just fade and drift away
Like ours did.
Though the flame you lit has now died out, the embers remain
Glowing faintly, smoking feebly in the cavern of my heart.
Long years passed, yet nothing can wash away your traces.
Hence I will keep what you have left as treasures and trophies.
From the first conquest of a heart; from the first exploration of love;
Like securing a photograph of the first flash of color
In my once monochromatic existence,
I shall treasure all I have left of you, my first and truest love.
