Thoughts Of You


Heard

I fill my day
with a bit of this
a dash of that
to stop myself
from thinking of you
But when I read a book
a character with
wavy hair
and twinkling eyes
reminds me of you
My eyes freeze
on the page
My mind drifts
to thoughts of you

I listen to music
the lyrics speak
of everlasting love
promises I once
heard from you
The song fades
as my mind drifts
to thoughts of you

I make myself coffee
to snap out of this
melancholic fog
I spoon sugar
into my mug –
two spoonfuls –
that’s what you liked
The milk boils over
as my mind drifts
to thoughts of you

Everything I do
is coloured with
your memories
So I do nothing at all
just sit and gaze
at the clouds
I spot one that
looks like a face – yours

There will never
be an escape –
my mind will
always drift
to thoughts of you
