What remained

Love didn't disappear
when we parted
it lingered as a memory
of tenderness
and remembered

it stayed with me
reminding me that
letting go
isn't that easy

my mind knew the truth
but my heart has its will
it feels what it wants
despite me

the ghost of our love
long after I reached 
for your hand
in the dark of night

(Poem from Passion in Verses)
