About the Poem
This poem was written after a relationship was put on hold. How can one day everything be perfect in your world and the next you are standing alone with tears in your eyes? If you are involved with someone and you love them - love them with all of you each time you are with them. You never know which time will be you last.
Oh, The Difference A Day Makes
|by Judy Burnette|
|Yesterday you held me tightly
close to your chest;
You kissed my lips with passion
our love it was the best.
Your hands caressed my body
passion was at its height;
Our bodies blended as one
we loved with all our might.
Your eyes they said you loved me
your heart beat quickly with mine;
I thought I would see you next week
same place, same time.
How could I have known as I drove away
the words that you would say;
All my dreams of tomorrow
turned to nightmares today.
Oh, the difference a day makes,
though I want you even more;
Yet I stand outside waiting -
as you slowly close the door.

Your poem it's so beauifull, I speak spanish but your poem in other lanuage than mine still touched me, feelings have an universal language, and I love You means the same, without words, I lose the love of my life only two weeks ago, and now I know that I didn't realized in that time that everything has an end, I wish I could return the time and have said I love you, one minute before he left.
that poem was so accurate in describing the way that love is so quickly lost. It really hit close to home, i found it to be a beautiful piece.
