About the Poem
I wrote this for Todd, my first and only love, though many have touched my life. I knew someday I'd have him back in my life. Ten years later, I do, but it's bittersweet, as our love was eternal, but my faith was not.
And now I belong to another.
Lost And Forever
|When the snow has melted and the birds begin their song
And the summer warmth fills my heart again,
I think of you
And how you once held me under the June stars.
Though it's been many years since I've felt your touch,
And your scent has faded from the shirt I wore that night,
I still think of you
And how you held me by the waterfall.
It was just an adolescent dream that we would last
Though I always thought somehow we would.
Which is why I still think of you
When my world seems grim and lonely.
I said back then no one would ever know me quite the same way,
And that I'd think of your face last on my dying day.
And eternally, I'd think of you
And the few short years we spent in love.
For heaven must consist of you and I as one,
Because I couldn't live my life knowing
That thinking of you
Was the closest I'd ever get to Eden.
Someday I'll hold you again - of that I'm certain.
And you'll look in my eyes the way you used to,
And you'll see life and reality,
love and believability,
truth and consistency.
'Til then, please think of me.
