A love I had once long ago,
Haunts me still, it seems,
For when I fall asleep at night
She comes to me in dreams.

I know I can't possess her,
I know I never will,
But I can hold her in my heart
And ease my pain at will.

She was wounded when I found her,
Gave her love and made her whole,
Then her old love came and claimed
Her and she left and took my soul.

In my dreams at night I hold her,
In my dreams she loves me still-
Yet I know I can't possess her
And I know I never will..

Jerry, thanks for reviewing my "Better days" poem. This is a great write, I can definitely relate... the irony of love...

Reviewed by Jaclynn Huntington
Such beauty and sadness in a connection of wisdom. Love may be lost but they can not take the memories from us that we wish to cling to. Wonderfully written!

Hi Jerry,
Thought I'd make contact. I love the sentiment of holding that love in your heart. Who hasn't dreamt of a love past with such longing while realising the impossibility of the wish? My ideas of love aren't orthodox but I still appreciate the beauty of this poem. I hope to hear from you.

Jerry, this is poinant and lovely. I generally don't go for rhyming poetry, but you pull this one off so smoothly. It communicates it's melancholy very truly. Nice nice work.

Jerry, this really hit home with me.

Welcome to the den, Jerry. What a treat to read well-metered rhyme.. but my heart read it too and you speak of a longing and sadness that has gripped most. You say it well.. I do hope you overcome and go on. Its so tempting to stay with these feelings as poets.. but joy provides us with a muse as well.. Take care. katy.

We all have one that never leaves or thoughts hearts or dreams. The is a very very BEAUTIFUL Poem.
Reviewed by C. Gourlay (Reader)
Longing deftly captured, hope bolted to the page. How sad, Jerry. Perhaps we cannot choose who we love-- perhaps it is love who chooses us. I summon a quote from Chekhov's About Love: '...and with a burning pain in my heart I realised how unnecessary, how petty, and how deceptive all that had hindered us from loving was.'
Reviewed by Patricia Boudreau (Reader)
Ah...welcome Jerry... and one of my favorites of yours, such a beautiful piece, one that I never tire of reading...
