I used this, with several words changed, for my wedding vows March 30, 2010. The poem can have various meanings...

This is an excerpt from Love's Wall.


After the Tide


I want to take your hand

And walk along the sand,

But we won’t talk of days gone by.

We had so much grief and misery then

It would just make us give up and cry.


I want to take your hand

And walk along the sand

We’ll give it another try

And talk of visions we have seen

And rekindle memories of what should have been.


I want to take your hand

And walk along the sand

And start our journey anew

Because the dreams that we once had

Will still happen for me and for you.


So honey take my hand

And walk with me along the sand

We’ll cast what fate dealt us behind

As we joyfully talk of our hopes and our dreams

And the happiness that we shall find.

Honest and from the heart. Very sweet. I hope someday your wish comes true.

Needless to say John, you have managed to stun me with the simplicity and depth of your poem..indeed, LOVE as such, is quite simple. It's we that complicate it.
Yes,it is a choice to experience it in the here and now for it is a waste of energy rehashing the past.
I wish more men would have your sense and sensibility regarding love.
