Fading Memories Poem Verses

In the twilight of your fading mind,
I searched for you, for love to bind,
The echoes of laughter, now distant dreams,
Lost in the haze, as silence screams.

I miss your touch, your voice so dear,
The moments we shared, when you were near,
Yet deep within, your love remains,
Fading memories, through joy and pain.

In whispered prayers, I'll find my peace,
A love unbroken, a bond that's ceaseless,
My dear one, forever near,
Fading memories, undying, clear.
