Life Memories

Written by Ann LeFlore: Submitted to The Poetry Palace for Thursday Poets Rally Week 50

Life Memories

One day out of the blue
You entered my life
like something new
With a blink of an eye
and the pass of a hand
The hours of time
fell like the grains of sand

Your gentle touch
so soft and new
Kisses so soft
as the day begun

It happened so fast
that time stood still
My heart was filled
with happiness
So precious and new

The love we shared
so sweet and new
The time we had
all so few

For you entered my heart
and took me away
To a land yet close
but so far away

The sea was filled
with warmth and delight
The nights were mysterious
and gentle as the light

My love for you
never the same
all so new

You captured my heart
and took it away
You left me so blue
when you went away

Now I sit here everyday
thinking of you
The time we share
oh so few

The memories of you
all so new
You planted your seed
deep within

You left me standing her
crying within
Now all that is left
is the memories of you

Days pass me by
while thinking of you
For you captured my heart
and took me away

Now you’ve gone
and thrown that away
But in my heart
I will think of you

The time we share
so sweet and new
For my heart is broken
over the memories of you

  6. oh, i like this one.
    it reminds me a little bit of mine
    in the sense that it has an air
    of loss and longing to it.
