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...

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, "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."
this is so moving and heartbreaking. speaking as one from experience... thank you for sharing, and so glad to meet 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.

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) 11/29/2002
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.'

Ah...welcome Jerry... and one of my favorites of yours, such a beautiful piece, one that I never tire of reading...
Reviewed by Linda Hill 11/27/2002
OUTSTANDING, Jerry. A big welcome
to the den, and I will look forward
to more poems from you. You have an
excellent insight ... I could feel
your pain in your words.
