"Bittersweet Memories"
by Eric von Bayer

Alone I lay,
sighing for you,
holding my pillow
to my breast,
remembering, longingly,
the feel of you.
The memories
don't come easily...
I shudder
and hold back a tear...
bittersweet not
for the past,
but for the lull
between past and future.
Alone in a
peopled world,
two hearts
beat in unison.
