I wrote this poem some time ago but was not satisfied with it so I pulled the main feeling from it and wrote the poem Almost which i posted a couple of weeks ago. This is the first version of Almost

I feel you drift away
as our 'might haves'
and 'should bes' part to
make way for the harsher
realities of the
'will be' and the 'have to'
that is life...
the part of me that still
believes in fairy tales
sheds a tear for the beauty
that could have been 'us'
and the part of me that
understands that life
is never that pretty
shrugs and says
'I knew it would never happen
you will always have a place
in my heart
where the things that aught
to have happened will
always dwell
and tomorrows still have
a chance
where motor bike trips and
long summer evenings
have a hallowed spot in
future wishes and nightly
dreams, in blissful memories
in 'someday' schemes
in special places
that my lips can't find
that only my
heart embraces

Happy Birthday, Sue. Just had my 58th on the 17th. Loved this poem even in its primary state. You did a wonderful job of making the reader think about "what could have been"

I think at times we tend to not want to expect better in fear of recieving much less than we yearn for. Its easier that way isn't it?
It doesn't hurt as bad..and even if it does we would never let anybody else ever know it.
This is good..and I love the way you ended it.

Memories. Without them like would not be as sweet. Even the bittersweet one. Good.

A romantic longing so painful it makes the heart hurt trying to read these lines and compassion for the subject is overpowering. Well done Sue.
