Golden Memories

He braved his fear
and smiled through his tears
he fought back her thoughts
and disdain his love

Yet she kept resurfacing
from time to time
in whatever he did
and wherever he went

For her grief was not trivial
and his sorrow was excruciatingly deep
As she flowed in his veins
and lived in his breath
in those moments of despair
and between some chapters of his dreams
she remained at large
in every step, and every scene

He knew he wouldn’t succeed
to escape her sight,
so he made a deal
with his fleeting plight

The panacea he found
was a tad hard to believe
for he traded his sorrows
with her golden memories
and kept her impressions
fresh, next to his sight
and ignited his love
with her reminiscence by his side
