from the heart

i ran up to you
lifted you in my arms
and spun around
faster and faster
till the rest of the world
was a meaningless blur
you were there alone
a constant in a void
my anchor and solace
for eternity

it wasn't eternity
as it turned out to be
and here i am
running and spinning
faster and faster
all the world
a meaningless blur
all without you
and i can do nothing
but go on running

memories don't come
with an expiry date
and i can't ever
stop loving you
no matter how far
you might be
the dreams i once saw
lie in pieces now
but i still dream
of your smile

a picture of your smile
lies by my bedside
and i'll cry to sleep
one more night
