Excuse me . . .
just a short love-lost lament from one of yester-years encounters.


 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The pain of losing cast a far bigger shadow
than the joys of possession . . .
To miss what you never really had
is a fleeting and wasted emotion . . .
Come now into the shelter of my soul,
so that I might love you as mine own . . .
We will cast away the tomorrows,
because eternity doesn't need them . . .
When you have to go I'll not be sad,
for I was lucky to love you when . . .
I will hold those memories forever
beneath the scars of my loss . . .
For the pain of losing love is far more hurt
than the sorrow of death...
This I cannot accept, and not to accept
is a loss of possession

       Smokey Lonesome
November, 1969 / Orlando, Florida

Lots of heart-felt truth in this write, Smokey. I think most of us can relate to this.
Take care,
Sherry
