glimpse your heaven

life has gone on
time pushes forward
the minutes marching
the weeks winding
the seasons swaying
always onward
but just for this moment
this sweet
this bitter
this eternal moment
let me remember you
the way my heart would race
the way my imagination flew
the way my cheeks blushed
the way I swooned for you
let me remember those days
so very few
mere moments at best
so vivid in my memories
easy to spring from rest
let me cry a little
let me smile even more
let me glimpse your heaven
let me hold this evermore...

Kevin Tod Smith

And always at this time, I remember how lucky I was to have met him and how admiring him led me to such wonderful friends. I wish I could have told him how much he meant to me in that way. But maybe he knows, in his own way. :)

So maybe just a glisten of a tear in my eye, but always a smile when I remember Kev...
