When I knew you

There was a time, once

When you were my best friend

You said you loved me in the beginning

And you’ll love me until the end

I held your love once

I used to feel it on my skin

And while it haunts my dreams

I still long to feel it again

I knew you, so long ago

More than anyone else ever will

I knew your prayers, I knew your passion

All of your secrets, I keep them still

I knew your body better than you did

There wasn’t an inch I didn’t kiss

The taste of your skin is my favorite flavor

But it’s your lips I’ll forever miss

But the seasons pass by

And the clock ticks away

Days became years

And I sit here today

Lost in memories and laughter

Of all the things we would do

Like scrabble and Galaga

Back when I still had you
