The unforgettable heartache of lost love




                              Only Regret 
(Authored and Recited by Richard Lee Orey
Our days began with stolen glances
                                                                              Touching fingers and smiles
                                                                              Beating hearts and sunset walks
                                                                              That carried us for miles
                                                                              We watched the moon and all the stars
                                                                              Together we dreamed of life
                                                                               In a shiny wondrous world of love
                                                                              That would never know of strife
                                                                              I held you in my arms
                                                                              As you lived within my heart
                                                                             There was no way to separate
                                                                              Or ever grow apart
                                                                              For all the times we shared
                                                                              And together what we felt
                                                                              There was no other way to live 
                                                                              With the cards that we were dealt
                                                                              There was no one else for me
                                                                               O, how could I forget?
                                                                              I never saw another
                                                                              Yet now there's only regret
                                                                              Time and life sent us far apart
                                                                              But I dreamed of you each day
                                                                              I planned a life with just us two
                                                                             There could be no other way
                                                                              Still I turned my head and strayed in thought
                                                                               As another came into view
                                                                              And stole your heart away from me
                                                                              Before I even knew
                                                                              There was no one else for me
                                                                              O, how could I forget?
                                                                               I never saw another
                                                                               Yet now there's only regret
                                                                              So if a love should come to you
                                                                               As a strange and lovely fact
                                                                               Don't take your gift for granted
                                                                               Get on your knees and act
                                                                               There was no one else for me
                                                                                O, how could I forget?
                                                                                I never saw another
                                                                                Yet now there's only regret
                                                                                I never saw another
                                                                                Yet now there's only regret
                                                                   Richard Lee Orey

Regret that is not from the surface, but from deeply felt love, pain...
Yet, at some time one needs to forget and keep living. But before, there is a time of doubt and fear, for sure.

Richard, I love the rhyming meter of your poem as much as the words--they could be songs and your wonderful speaking voice adds so much emotion to them. You are a truly amazing poet--you touch my heart with each poem you write.

All the best!!
