A Poem - I Thought Of You

I wrote this poem today in memory of those who lost loved ones in the terrible attack on the Twin Towers in New York City on this day in 2001.

I Thought Of You


I thought of you last night
When I wrapped the duvet tightly round
I remembered how a battle would ensue
As we both lay there, neither of us willing
To give up our carefully carved out ground


I thought of you last night
As I wiggled my toes and stretched out my arms
Assuming a star position and embracing the space
I reached out to feel you, a touch of your leg
Remembering how I had fallen for your charms


I thought of you last night
As I lay there awake, desperately trying to sleep
I recall how you would fall asleep as soon as
Your head hit the pillow, why couldn't I do the same
Alert now, those memories I will keep


I thought of you last night
Looking far into the distance and seeing
Lights twinkling, was this our future
A brightness that would never die out
You made me complete, a whole being


I thought of you last night
Adored & cherished, I don't want to ever forget
We took it all for granted, that surely is true
For your lights turned out too early
Extinguished our love, consoled we had met
