I Remember Loving You

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

dreams-upon-the-wind

I remember loving you,

in ages long past,

in the days when love was something new

and life was but a carefree spree.

I remember loving you,

a thousand lifetimes ago,

the touch of your hand,

in the purple haze,

as the sky turned to inky black,

the stars began to blaze.

I remember loving you,

longing for you when we were apart,

your soulful looks

and tender words -

that were spoken when the fire of passion burned.

I remember loving you,

the echoes of our laughter still resound,

in a time which just as quickly spun away -

leaving an emptiness behind.

I remember loving you,

seems like something out of a dream,

seeing a picture of you,

I wonder if you’ll step out of it,

like in some movie scene,

but I know that this wasn’t a love to last a lifetime -

we should just be glad for the memories that remain.

I remember loving you,

when love was brand new,

when the tears and fears,

of other loves had not left their scars,

when trusting and believing -

were still the key to my heart.

I remember loving you

and now when I see a picture of you,

I can close my eyes and smile,

‘cause once there was you and once there was me,

once there was a dream we shared

and a love that daydreams are made of,

at least I still have this picture of you

and I remember when our love was new.

Rasma you write so knowingly about love. The images are soft and tender. You are inspiring me to try and write about love. Its something I am going to have to dig for. With you? It comes so freely and easily. Lovely.
