the leafless limbs are stark
as they stand out within the moonlight
I stare at your face through the dark
as your memories drain me of might
you once were my only true love
as no other lover could be
I always am dedicated to you, love
even as you forget me
no other can take your place
within my heart this day
as I stare upon your face
this cold, dark winter's day

[circa 1992]
