She took me down off her wall of love.

For it was there I thought I’d stay forever.

And although it has been months now,

I still think of her at the most inappropriate of moments:


walking up the stairs,

solving an equation,

washing the dishes,

or unlocking the door.


And through all the bad and the ugly,

I can only remember the good and the great. 

She is truly irreplaceable.

A wonderful human being.


But now I have built my own wall,

and brick by brick I build it tall and strong,

So nothing can ever get through to me again -

not even her.
