Everything Today


Le café…

Everything smells like you today
Like you did that night there were so many stars
it was if they’d come to church
And we were the object of their worship

The wind blew and sweetness of your skin
Captured my senses
Refused to let me go
I will never forget that smell

Everything looks like you today
Like you did when the orange light of the morning
Spilled across your face
Trying to compete with your beauty

Your eyes looked in mine
Captured my heart
Refused to let me go
I will never forget that look

Everything tastes like you today
Like you did when we shared a cup of coffee
To hide from the rain
It was our moment

You leaned over and I kissed you
Captured my soul
Refused to let it go
I will never forget that taste

Everything sounds like you today
Like you did when you told me you were leaving
The breaking of my heart
Drowning out your words

Your words were silent
I was captive
I refused to let you go
I will never forget that sound

Everything feels like you today
Like you did when you walked away from me
Pretending that I’m not here
Like it never really happened

We never talked again
Still I’m captive
I haven’t let go
I haven’t forgotten
