I remember when we first
started seeing each other,
the glimmer in your eyes,
and the glow in your heart.
I knew you were the one
for me,
and you believed I hung
the moon.

It's amazing to think back,
about how we were
always together
living life,
loving love
and hoping for the future.

At one time,
it looked so bright,
but times change
when you're not around,
people change,
lives change.

You chose a different path,
we both understood
that we were too young,
and needed to realize
our aspirations,
ahead of our dreams.
If we were meant to be,
there'd be a place for
us both
in each other's arms,
if our hopes stay true .

As much as I tried,
I couldn't tell a lie.
You drifted away,
and our lives took shape;
not the shape we had chosen
such a short time before,
but life had unfolded.

We had an amazing run,
loved deeper than anyone,
live happier than most,
in that city by the coast.
You've left me with more
memories of the good times,
very few of the bad,
and a love I will compare
all future relationships to.

Looking back,
I thank you for the past,
and I still wish you luck
in the future,
but I'll keep my fingers crossed
for the present,
hoping to find you again
in real-life,
and not only in my dreams...

It's sad when that perfect love slips away. Small wonder you look back and keep a glimmer of hope..but as people change over time so do emotions. Then again, who knows?

A poem from the heart. Well done.

I think that that is a hope many of us entertain, Rodd.
Beautifully written!
