Memories Will Have To Do

It’s hot and humid,

Blues music drowns out the wall unit,

Struggling to blow air, especially the cooling kind.

I got you on my mind tonight.

Pacing back and forth in this eleven feet space.

I picture your face,

Glowing in its natural beauty kissed by the twilight.

You were my shooting star,

A dream come true.

I got you on my mind tonight.

Weight of the world on my shoulders but the thought of you makes it feel light.

Traveling in the wrong direction, but you made it right.

Dazed and stumbling, you cleared my sight.

In my corner through countless internal fights.

I got you on my mind tonight.

I close my eyes and hope dreams come true.

I’d make a wish and you’d be here too.

In the meantime, memories will have to do.

I wish I would’ve given more of myself to you.

I got you on my mind tonight.
