Some Memories

For Tanya

Some memories never let go
like dazzling blue eyes
forever imprinted upon my mind
or that smile
that brightened my darkest days
Those are memories
I wish to never fade
but my mind is filled with holes
and even the most cherished
tend to slip through
I crisscross the holes
with memories of soft caresses
gentle kisses
longings so deep
that even the miles between us
can never separate
Such thin webs
hold me to you
