Often in our haste we forget...what we truly love the best


Together we have been, for twenty and ten

And I love you even more now, than I did back then.

I see you in my mind, and feel you in my heart wherever I go,

and I long to hold you in my arms forever, and watch our love grow.

I cherish these days under Gods glorious sun,

And pray in earnest that our life’s battle will be won.

This is a certainty of how my heart truly does feel

Yet somehow, other effects in our life came quietly to steal.

For there are, many things that I fail to understand,

One being is how you could love someone like me…this solitary man.

I fear that selfish I have been, so very selfish in our twenty and ten.

For there are so many challenges which race through this thoughtless mind

And I struggle to give unto you what you deserve the most….MY TIME.

However, with so many dues in this life to pay, and so little time to make my way.

I feel that I have neglected what I truly love best….that my love, being you.

So forgive me if you can, and never stop loving me…

Signed with love….The Solitary Man From The Sea.

This beautifully composed poem could well be the logo
of every poet's life page.
Our talents, whatever they be, always seem to be at the
price of pain to loved ones. And when the unselfish loved
ones truly understand that, and forgive, then we are once
again reminded of how priceless these ones are to us.

Allen, there is nothing as touching as a tribute to one's lifetime mate.
It brought tears to my eyes..for even I felt the truth and honesty of every word.
I know she'll love it. Lisa
