Ice and Roses (repost)

Quantifying heartache on the scale of time
All the firsts reopen the wounds
And occasions can only be so special without you

Despite theoretical hopes
My faith's will to reminisce
Imagination is all I've got
But my mind can't fake true happiness

Relapse in sadness
I medicate as I live in madness
When the heart is lost for withdraws
And the pages are my vice
I'll write a thousand letters to you
But you're the missing part of a moment's paradise

Good advice given to lull the absence
All the beautiful sentiments of death bedside clichés
I can't find the color in the sky behind these clouds of gray

You're alive in a place of eternal light
I'm dead beneath the rays of the shadow sun
Un-dead I walk to destination home again
Till the souvenirs of our sorrows are undone

These memorial words I write
As I echo these emotions that refuse to fade
Two days after my first birthday without you
I designate this moment to think about every memory made

Another few days till we grace the aisle
You are the unspoken undertone in every tear shed and smile
Amidst our joys I cannot help but think as we quote our vows to endear
Part of me will weep as I think "I wish my mom was here"

And so she is, so they say in the spirit of comfort
With references to the unseen witness of my life
But the thoughts don't replace the physical presence of you
When I'm who I am today because of you and my beautiful wife

What's to be said of all it took to come to this place
When I think of death as we wear our masks of red
Resealing our vows amidst ice and roses
Let love mend our soul's and lay to rest the dead....
