About the Poem
This poem was written on my way back from a first meeting with a beautiful woman (I had answered an ad that I had found on the net). We talked on the phone for several weeks before our meeting. In those few weeks I had fallen in love with this beautiful woman - her thoughtfulness and kindness - and the voice of an angel. With the talks and the e-mails, I felt her feelings were the same.
We met on an April evening in her hometown. When I first saw her, I felt that I had never known such beauty and joy. We spent two wonderful days together, and I fell even deeper in love with her. Things were beautiful; but the whole time I felt there was something wrong on her part, and I couldn't put my finger on it. I may never know...
Oh So Blue
|by Jimmy Teague|
|My life was bleak, Jim Teague,
And oh so blue.
I searched the internet for you.
I found your ad;
It looked so inviting.
I sat down and started writing.
We talked for hours on the phone,
I finally felt I was not alone.
I had found a heart, oh so true,
and that heart belonged to you.
I made my plans to make my flight,
to meet you on an April night.
When I saw you the night we met,
my heart felt joy, I'll not forget.
We laughed, we smiled;
We forgot the miles.
We held each other in a lovers' bliss.
I will never forget your kiss.
I love you, Karen, with all my heart,
I knew I would right from the start.
The day I left my heart was sad,
Wondering if our meeting had made you glad?
Your note that night was oh so cold.
My heart could now feel the load.
My dreams were sinking into the night.
I had hoped that I would win this fight.
A fight for love, oh so true,
but again my life is oh so blue.
I dared to fall in love with you.
