We Were Only Two (Poem)

My steps do not stop
if the road of life
leads to the future.

My memories do not betray

steps lived in the past.

An image, a few words,

a little laughter and joy,
so much joy.

They were minutes lived and experienced in a timeless reality,

they were words, small words,

far away from the world.

They were born from the heart to live in the soul.

We were only two people
Sharing a moment,
simply, yet intensely living.

The steps will not cease,

the embers do not burn out,
and the heart still holds each spark
and still lights the fire of memories.

We were only

Life brings us many visitors, touching our lives in numerous ways. Some remain with us for a lifetime while others stay but a brief moment in time. But it's the impressions left by those who momentarily enter our life that are most remembered and seldom ever matched. The ones we never chose and the ones we never meant to meet. But in some odd twist of fate these are the ones that touched our life. And in that brief moment, they are the ones we cherished the most. And the memory stays with us forever.

io ti amerò sempre

Ti vedo scritta su tutti i muri, ogni canzone mi parla di te.

The simplicity betrays its depth/. I have come away from reading it feeling tearful, or is it just melancholia?

Regardless, I loved it.
