That Place I Loved

I remember a time
When you looked at me and smiled
When you would lose yourself in me
When we were so in love
We could not stop saying it
Now after a long time
Of dreaming and praying for things to change
It seems we are headed back
To that place I loved
I imagine warm embraces
Your fingers on my skin
Your lips pressing against mine
And most of all
I pray for forgiveness
For all that I have done
For the first time in years
It seems possible
And I can stop crying long enough
To notice the present
Instead of focusing on the past
I hope it lasts
