Do you know the feeling
of seeing a face
that makes your entire being ache
with the memory
of love?

They hold parades for lesser moments.

as someone who loves

as possible, I have
to say, I love this!!

Awesome!  I must echo what has already been said.  You have emcompassed a large deal of emotion with just these couple lines.  Love that last line!  Great first post and I look forward to more in the future!
