Yesterday I found myself on a road driving south
And a landmark made me think of you.
I then thought of how in just a short time
I’ve built some nice memories of you.
Another landmark made me think of the comment you made
About how unobserving I was – and I started to laugh.
This just added to the feeling that I was not driving alone
But that you were there with me.
Since the day I drove you to Cape Cod,
I’ve had the urge to return there again.
I know how you said you liked being there,
So I went there for you, hoping to catch
That wonderful feeling I had just exploring with you.
You said you liked lighthouses
And I decided to find one.
And even though the day was cloudy,
Thinking of you made it sunny.
I used to have only memories from your neck of the woods,
But since you came to visit I now have reminders
Of when you were here.
I only have to travel a mile to see the places
Where we had breakfast and dinner,
And they too bring back good memories of the sweet you.
I don’t have to go far to be reminded of you.
I just have to turn my computer on
And I find some pictures that I took of you.
In the darkness of the subway station
Your smile brought brightness.
One look at that smile
And it has me immediately smiling back.
It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that
No matter where I turn I can feel you near.
I love the memories of you.
