About the Poem

This poem was written for a girl I once loved very much. But, now all I have left of her is the memories.


I remember when I met you
the smile on your face,
Seems like a million years ago -
a different time and place

I remember when I kissed you
the warmth inside my heart,
I thought it'd last a lifetime
I swore we'd never part

I thought about the future
I started making plans,
Forever you'd be my woman
forever I'd be your man

We went together places
so that everyone could see,
The women that I want to share
the rest of my life with me

I told you that I loved you
I told you that I cared,
I told you if you were falling
just look back and I'd be there

I know I didn't have all the answers
sometimes I only guessed,
But, through it all I have to say
"I always tried my best"

I wasn't always perfect
I wasn't always right,
I know sometimes I wasn't
even worthy in your sight

I know I took for granted
the love you had to share,
All I ever wanted was
for you to know I cared

Our lives have changed directions
as sometimes lovers do,
Often time and change
and pave a path that's new

Sometimes I often wondered
just what lies ahead,
Sometimes I'd like to turn back time
and take back what I said

We've both gone different places
we've both gone different ways,
I know sometimes I let you down
when trouble came our way

I know sometimes I did things
you didn't comprehend,
But, through the years and all the tears
our memories will never end........

This Poem reflects many relationships that everyone I know(including myself) have gone through. The poet is very open to his feelings about past memories. Excellent job!
