The realization brought a choking to my throat.
My eyes swelled in tears.
The realization came to me fully
that I will never be loved like that again.
The youthful memory of having a woman look at me like that again.
The reflection of a hero in her eyes.
Reflected also in the shining armor of a knight.
Ah sweet memories
if only the taste of those kisses
could return again,
would I know again
the joy of love.
