Never forget

I never forgot the need.
I did not turn my back.
Time just flew,
Twisted and turned,
and showed another path.

I never forgot the passion,
Straining for freedom,
Against the binding,
That grew there from years,
Of silence and pain.

I never forgot the dream,
I walked each night.
Dark was the path and hard to see,
For you were hidden
From my inner eyes.

I never forgot you,
Or the ache in my heart,
When torn from me.
By unkind time,
We lost our moments.

I will not forget the wind.
The way it blows against
My soul as I stand,
On the edge of a cliff,
Watching this world without you.
