As I gaze into your eyes I know your love for me.
The warmth of your smile shows compassion towards me.
Sadly, we parted many years ago, and the love
and affection you show come only from a picture
I hold in my hand, a moment in time when you loved me.
We loved, we kissed, we were young and carefree.
I hold a picture of you when you were once mine.

I intended to put a twist into this poem by starting in the past tense and turning it in to a past event with sadness and emotion.
