Past Revisited
By La Belle Rouge

sometimes in thought I still go there
that rendezvous remembered
a vine covered summerhouse where
our eyes met, pale spring green
we both were so young
and we would be forever it seemed

endearing smile before it disappeared
your straight back bowed down
with the weight of years
by dark horrors of bloody war
your clear jade eyes were grayed
and it felt like you didnít love me anymore

only in thought do I visit there again
where life and love seemed idyllic
I think about what might have been
if old men hadnít sent young men to war
itís too painful to visit the past
and I wonder what I still go there for

4/8/2012 La Belle Rouge

Music "Somewhere In Time"

Belle, We go back to the past to look at it one more
time so we say...but really we want to remember the
way things were and even though we can't change the
past we always say, if only...

What a beautiful piece of writing combined with the lovely and haunting music from the film 'Somewhere In Time...the combination is enchanting...Your words have touched my heart and soul...the past with all its pain and heartache has a way of luring us back with bitter sweetness...I can testify to theis...
Hugs, Diana...

This is so personal I feel like almost not commenting. However, I am always concerned about what war does to young men sent by old men. It appears from the poem, that you have been touched personally by that situation.

Belle, a deeply touching and romantic poem with a question mot ask a million times over in their lifetime regarding war - why? - your poetry is a special that I visit with great joy - I wish you love peace and joy my dear friend -- Jon Michael
Reviewed by Amor Sabor 4/8/2012
The same society that sends young men to war fails to take care of them and so the sacrifice continues, not just in the soldiers life, but of those who surround him who continue to make the sacrifice. You return to that rendezvous place to honor what once was and to give it respect, through remembrance. A truly beautiful write in which your pure heart pours forth.

"... itís too painful to visit the past and I wonder what I still go there for..." And yet we still do, do we not?

Nicely put, Belle. Thanks Dick
