The Last Time

I remember the last time

like it was yesterday

though it must have been

over 6 years ago.


It was June, I know that.


If I knew it would

be the last time,

I would studied

each moment.


I would have memorized

every freckle,

every dimple,

until I could trace you

with my eyes closed.


I still think about you

every day.

You were my first,

and the last thing

I think about every night.


I browsed photos

of you and her this morning;

she is so happy

like I could have been.


But alas it was not meant to me.


You were never

supposed to be mine,

but I am forever yours.
