Promise

I promise I haven’t forgotten,
After 10 years, I’m not sure I could.
It’s been thousands of days, millions of minutes,
Remember all we said that we would?
I wish I transcribed our convos,
They were funny, they were happy, they were sad,
They were loud, smiley, soft-spoken — all I wish I had.
All the late nights, even the big fights,
The intensity in your eyes from my sheer black tights,
You were the simple guy who loved flying kites,
You were the shy guy who shunned all spotlights,
You took my happiness to newfound heights,
You took my happiness to newfound heights.
I don’t miss a piece of you,
I don’t miss but a few,
I miss your entire being
It’s everything that made you you.
I will always love you.
