THANK YOU

It's amazing what you find when you clean out the closets! I found this last night while I was packing. It was written years ago and reminds me of unrealized hopes and dreams...




The days have passed
but still...
my heart feels empty

You filled a void
I didn't know I had

My life was fine
the way it was
The job, the tasks
the challenge of it all

kept my mind
from knowing what it's missing
You changed all that
with just a smile

Your presence like
a shower of joy
The instant comfort
and relaxed fit

of what
for a second, was "us"
turned to rubble
the wall around me I built

To keep you out
if you ever appeared

But.....

I knew I would fall
to your mesmerizing ways
without trying you cleared the cloud
that was my life

For once I could see
how much more my life could be
with you in it
my days were bright

The thought of "us" still open
to the idea maybe
you were mine
My nights were brighter still

If you were there, just sleeping
laying so beautifully
by my side
I could stare for hours

at your gorgeous face
seeing a future roll by
without realizing
you had my soul

Ready to be yours
If you would have me
Hoping you did
Afraid you would

Making love
felt so alive and real
from head to toe
I wanted to know it all

I can't imagine
looking back I could be so wrong
and not sense that
you were not really there

That you could walk away
from "us" so easy
the "feels right" obviously
parting ways with you

And now alone
I see and feel
the other side of joy
the pain... the emptiness

Reserved for those of us
left behind
the sadness of not knowing
exactly what went wrong

When it all felt so right
I guess it was
just me
that saw and felt that way

I'm not sure
the point of it all
except to say

Thank You...

For letting me see
that, if only for an instant,
I could be
so very very happy

and see
how much more my life can be
with
someone special in it...

  1. Love this too!

    I've wondered the same thing. How could I have felt "it" but the other didn't? How could I feel such love and certainty and connect yet be so wrong? I've come to realize love is something inside of us that we give and share and do. It's ours to give away, from inside. Just because someone else doesn't accept it or reciprocate doesn't make it any less real. But I still ask myself, how could I have been wrong? At least I know I do have the capacity to share the love inside me because I have done so even if it wasn't lasting in the end.

    I really like your writing. I'm gonna book mark you and read more. Thanks!
