Brain Freeze

Deep thoughts running through my head.
Memories turn, feelings shift.
Brain burns with desire to be near you,
next to you, feeling your fire.
Warm and safe deep within your heart.
Never alone, but so far from home.
Miles between, oceans beneath,
longing to see what is underneath.
Your eyes burn in my memory,
warm heat rushes over me.
Twisting and turning, feelings fade,
holding, longing, for another day.

One day we'll meet, creating joy that lasts.
Thinking, remembering, the distant past.
Time robs our emotions, letting go,
like an empty glass, one for show.
Mind and heart together at last.
Forever you'll be, within my grasp.
