[ Note to people who know me: this is not reflective of my current emotional state. This may be why it's not as good as some of my other stuff. ;) ]

I live and love, and, Love, I love forever,
And this I promise, but will you remember?
If all else falters, know that I still love you
As strongly as the day I first admitted
My feelings for you. They are graven in me
To score my heart until the day I perish.

Though your love passed away, mine shall not perish.
Though unrequited, doomed to be forever
An emptiness within my heart, to tear me
To pieces, still I know I shall remember
The place you were within me, were admitted
To all the depths of me, and know I love you.

It's wrong to say I cannot live without you.
I recognize I must, or else I'll perish.
If asked, I never would have once admitted
That I could face the loss of you forever.
The only thing I ask: that you remember
A time you thought you couldn't live without me.

I know you won't reserve your judgement for me.
You barely seem to know I ever loved you,
Or if you know, neglect to much remember.
Regret that you allowed your love to perish
Will always haunt me, follow me forever,
And still I fear what you have not admitted.

Can I be sure my heart has yet admitted
That you no longer have those feelings for me?
I crave them, wanted them to last forever,
Allowed myself to not just want but need you.
For me to persevere, the need must perish.
The hole it leaves, I always will remember.

At first, we had it all. Do you remember?
I don't know how, or haven't yet admitted
Within myself, what made what we had perish.
There isn't any more a reason for me
To try to make my feelings matter to you,
But that's a habit I have had forever.

And if I live forever, I'll remember
That once I loved you, once I had admitted
I let you touch me. That will never perish.
