Forever on my Mind



It’s been so long,

yet you’re forever on my mind.

The cool breeze

mixed with the late night rain

seeping through my window

reminds me of you.

The steady beat

and rhythmic sounds

bring me back to you.

The lush green

in every corner

makes me think of only you.

You’re forever on my mind.

Everything I see

reminds me of you.

Everything I feel

brings me back to you.

Everything around me

makes me think of only you.
