A poem about remembering a love that was not meant to be.





One day, a million dreams ago
In a far different time and place,
His smile had set her heart aglow –
Something that no one could erase.
Her days were filled with joy and fun
As she awaited each exchange,
But then, so soon, the joy was done
When their companionship turned strange.


He wanted someone she was not
And someone she refused to be,
It seemed the two quickly forgot
Their friendship had held harmony
He’d sung chorus for her words
The two were, indeed, quite a pair
But, their song would remain unheard
Since their notes vanished in thin air.


Time heals all wounds; this much is true
The two have found lasting success
But, sometimes, when the day is through
Her heart still suffers much duress
When she looks back upon the days
She spent, a million dreams ago
Remembering his special gaze –
The one that made her love him so.

Memories like those tend to get etched indelibly into our minds and hearts to be able to recall when and how ofern we chose to do so.

A nice pen about such love back then. And you wonder if they ever think the same thing too. I do. Lady J

Beautiful write. Love is a wondrous joy which can turn into a devistating emptiness. I quote a line from a movie. One fellow says to the other "It is better to loved and lost than never to have loved before." The other replied, "Try it!"
God Bless,
