TONIGHT I CRY WITH TEARS

by
 
ILVING TABIOS-ZAMORA



Tonight I cry with tears
why you left me so suddenly without whispering goodbye
Leaving me nothing but the whiff of candles, the embrace of a cold breeze
and scents of yellow roses

Tonight I cry with tears
recalling images of you and me
Wrapped in velvety satins, gasping, our toes curling
as we breathed love into each other

I thought I've forgotten you
like the songs we sang, like the poems we wrote, like the books we read
But why do I remember you
in every heart I touch, in every mouth I kiss?

Ah, it is easy to forget, what is hard is not to remember!

How can I not remember
walking with you under rosy twilights
showering with you on the mists of a rainbow
Our first moment alone together and how hesitantly yet eagerly
we plunged into the vortex of sweet abandon

How can I not remember
the prayers we said, the bonfires we lit, the childish games we played
Your lilting gazes, Your lingering touches
… giggles, dimples, pinches…
The silk and smell and the taste of your hair

Ohhh, the searing warmth of your sweet tender passion!

Goodbye, Beloved, Goodbye
if in my eyes you are gone, in my heart you stay forever

You
:
beautiful as a spring day, haunting like a violin melody

How I loved you!
