All that I have is a memory-
To bring on my nightmares at night.
All that I have are my teardrops,
Which gleam in pale morning light.

A deep aching wound in my spirit-
The agony tears me apart...
All that remains is the hurting-
In the hollow which once housed my heart.

I dreamed of a life with you present-
I dreamed of a sweet interlude,
Crushed on reality’s anvil-
The shock to our feelings was rude.

You were a girl who was jaded-
Embittered by heartache and strife-
I was a gunhandy drifter...
Who rode on the dark side of life.

All that we had was the present-
Some brief stolen moments at best...
We headed in different directions,
My pathway is still heading West

All that I have is a memory...
Of the love which I saw in your eyes,
The fires of our passions were kindled,
Only ashes remained at sunrise.

Beauitful work!! Maybe look on it as two stars briefly meeting in the night time skies, gone now... but beautiful..

Cast your eyes on the ocean,
Every man goes down to his death bearing in his hands only that which he has given away...

As I anticipated, another fine read. Liked the line "Crushed on reality's anvil" as well as others.
