Poem: I Remember a Time

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Goodbye To Love" by The Carpenters


I remember a time
when my love
sparkled within your eyes,
now it is only
a fleeting memory.

I do not remember
the day or hour it changed,
only the heartache I felt
as I held back the tears,
realizing your heart was no longer mine.

I had dreamed
of our future together,
I had wanted
to be there
standing beside you,
facing our life together.

If only your eyes
had a sparkle
I would remain,
but it is senseless
if I can not
be the one
you desire.

"I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt
