Like any other, its a new day.
I convince myself your memory is gone to stay.

Another day to begin anew.
Another hour to pull "me" through.

I'm going to forget you, Today is the day!
But fear my memory of you will lead me astray.

I'll keep busy, won't remember you for a minute.
Won't remember a day in my life when you were in it.

But, all at once, memory hits me and then.
Tears of truth begin to fall again.

Warm tears turn to cold on my face.
Blue satin eyes, a smile I can never erase.

As I convince myself, you never meant anything to me.
Tears of truth fall and I'm left to face reality.

  Oh, Gemini,
             The tears of truth sting the most in our hearts. I have always been told that time is a great healer, and that's true, but to a poet like yourself....writing your feelings down is the best, and you wrote them down so very well, my friend.

Today is a gift....
That is why they call it
'the Present'!

I can only tell you that time heals all wounds, but the time depends on how deep they cut.
I'm going through the same thing, and it's been 4 months, and it seems harder now than ever.  I guess every one is different.
Writing does help.  
Truley a great poem.  I love it.

Sunny1-Thank you for your poetic understanding, coming from someone as gifted as yourself, I appreciate.
Daniel_vv-Thank you.
CAMERON-Thank you, You're so right about poetry helping.  Give the healing a year or so or at least a lifetime.
LM-Thanks Co-Gemini, I appreciate.  June 3rd is the birth date, how about you?

One day, those tears will be of joy once again.  Hang in there my friend.  May your tears cleanse your soul.

Gemini, had to read this, its not a Gemini thing, cause I'm a Leo, and it hit me hard as well  
For some odd reason it made me think of a country music song, can't even remember the name,but she is talking about how she never misses him except Monday, which was never good anyway,  and gos on to list all the days of the week.
I like this even better. And it is so hard to forget someone you loved. Maybe even impossible, if you look at my experience.
Take care.

This is so powerful and hits the cords of
memories in my heart tonight...if you only
knew...I guess we all have memories like
this...and that only makes this poem even
more special...thank you
for the "quiet comfort" tonight~
