About the Poem

When you love someone you can't be with, the memories are usually all you have. Memories can be so beautiful. They leave us with warm feelings and believing that someday our dreams will come true.

Looking for a poem as an introduction for a speech at a wedding reception. This was GREAT.
Hi Judy, Thanks for sharing your poetry with us. My boyfriend in Australia (i am in south africa) sent me this poem. I was soooooooo touched. There is so much silly poetry and cliche's on the internet. Yours was real. I felt it. We will meet each other on the 17th Dec for the first time . . . thanks a whole lot. Love Joni
this is beautiful, just how i feel being parted from my man.
thank you.i know now that i'm not alone with my feelings. The person I love, whom I have ever loved, and I aren't seperated by miles. We are seperated at heart. I know your beautiful words are only a portiong of my my thoughts are clear.

Memories 2

Yesterday's memories have become pictures for today;
I think of you
I close my eyes
You're no longer far away.

The petals of a rose
have taken on a different hue;
I no longer just smell their fragrance
I now see pictures of time spent with you.

The way you hold me when I first arrive
long silences...just lying close to you;
Sometimes your kiss takes my breath away
these are my name a few.

I love the sound of your laughter
I love to see you smile;
Sharing a part of my life with you...
in my heart we are together...
though we are separated by miles.
