Tattoo You

You guide me by the hand, so free
Through unblemished memories 
Only ever you could take me
All the way out of my mind
Sometimes In my dreams
I dream you back to life
We can never stay forever 
Though we damn sure try
We can never stay forever
But baby we have a little time
Before the sunrise shines a light
On the fading of the night
I tattoo you behind the lids of my eyes
Gone without saying goodbye
I wake alone, your silhouette by my side.

    If all that is left of a love is a tattoo then so be it, I found you have lost someone you truly loved in this poem and a reminder to all, that love is delicate. Just gorgeous. Ps nice to meet you.
