About the Poem

I wrote this poem because I found a girl I really like, but she her parents have this thing about her having boyfriends. So I finally said we shouldn't have to sneak around to be together.

Next Time

I've thought it over and I know what I want,
I need the girl who made my heart stop,
Since first sight I thought I might fall in love,
My secret mistress and long time lover,
When will you be mine,
Lately the thought has been on my mind,
And I want you to be mine next time.

I remember our first kiss and think about our last,
I wonder will we be forever or a thing of the past,
I wonder if you'll be mine and will it last
but if not, we can try again next time.

My heart will be yours forever,
Because you've been there when no one else was,
And you're my star from the heavens above,
And if you can't be my only love,
I'm willing to wait until next time.

This poem really touched me. It makes me think of a certain someone who I was with a while back.

I Love this poem not only does he show his by waiting for next time but also by the fact that he knew dat being kept as a secret Lover isnt right! like he said you shouldnt have to go out in secret if you kno your in love! i love this poem.
i really really like this poem. its just so amazing.
I loved it. You really touched me with the way you put things.
Kevin, I am a who is in a similar situation as your friend was. Your poem made me cry. If my special friend feels like you did when you wrote this poem, I think I'll keep him forever. You have touched me - I printed your poem and put it in my notebook.
it makes sense. it touches the heart and brings out the emotions. simple but sweet. after all,poems were meant to be.
i really love this cus if this was to a boy it wound be like me and my boyfriend
this is a very beautiful poem that really relates to me in many ways even though it was meant to be for a girl it can relate for a guy as well.
This poem touched me deeply. This related to me so well, that i had to tell my ex-girlfriend this poem because i wan it to be us "next time"
yes it touched me a lot i know its talking about a girl instead of a guy but mines with a guy that poem is so sweet it reminds me so much of me and my boyfriend which has been together for 2 years. thanks danna
That was a smooth poem you
this poem is very nice i love it so much!
I was with this boy 4 almost 7 months. I loved him so much. And when it came to the end of the school year he got involved in wrestling so we never got to see eachother a alot. So he tells me that if he is going to have a life outside of school we can not be together. But he promised that we would be friends if not more. We dont talk because he tells all of his friends that he hates me. I still and always will love him no matter what!
I really liked this poem! Its in a way like me and my first love. My dad was always against our relationship and it made it harder to see eachother. Though thats not the only reason we broke up! I still miss him and we had a next time, though he also had a girlfriend and I hope there will be another next time just we only have eachother not somebody else!
this was one of the best poems i have ever read i really liked it and you have a speacial talent! remember that your are very speacial
This poem is really good. It shows how you feel about things in life. It shows how the author is really thinking about getting into a relationship. It shows the autthors thinking. Which really gets the reader excited. It's really great. It the # 1 poem in my weekily poem book.
i love this poem. it reminds me of my ex boyfriend and i want him back. it's a really nice poem. thank you.
It was cute, it's nice to see a guy that's not afriad or embaressed by his emotions.
Dats hott man
yeah i really think that peom was so nice i will give it a four becasue itwill touch a boy heart that you really love
WOW! i really liked your poem. Its the same way with me except I'm the girl whose parents don't want her to date. My mom HATES my current boyfriend. She had said that after I had broke up with my ex after 1 1/2 years that i was not to have a bf now that i do she hates him and i don't know what to do.
i personnaly loved this poem because i have a boyfriend and we've been going out for 3 weeks almostan this poem really spoke to me because i hope we stay together forever. great job!
WOW. that is exactly how i feel about the boy i want to be with so much. that was very good
i really like this one, i want a girl back at school that i went out with before but not shes back with her old bf
i voted for this poem for the reason that i sensed the guy's passion for the lady. there are many ladies out there but he chosed to wait for this certain girl. he must have loved the girl so much to wait for her. whew!

Hey! Kevin that is a really good poem it kicks lol. Hey dude keep up the good work
Tht was a really good poem, it sounded like me but I was talking about a boy!
This poem reminded me of my first love. My parents wouldn't let me see a guy so we had to spilt up. He did so many bad things while I was away and when he tried to get me back I had already found out of the bad things he had done. I still love him to this day and will forever. But I would never take him back not now. He still loves me I can tell. but this poem i just wanted to let you know is very special. one thing is. keep on loving her. love never fades completly!
i love your poem it is nice and sweet.
YO! Love the poem! I am in the same situation with my girlfriend and I hate it and want it to stop! I'll make sure to show it to her. and her parents! But one problem. they dun speak english! Keep writing! Adios!
Kevin i think that was a great poem and it reflects how i felt about my girl and hey if you keep at it you'll go far with her. i'd also ask that i use this for my english assignment. good work.
hey i like it
Beautiful work and it makes me fill like i'm in that situation again.
i love you pome and i like u
I really liked this poem. it brought to me a reminder of someone i love.
Kevin you hit home on this one. It happened to me when I was 16. I'm now 25 and I'm still trying to get back with the person. I will never give up intill he is mine forever.
Your poem seems really moving, and I'm not saying that just to make you feel good, but its really good. I know a good poet when I see one. Good job!
I LOVED YOUR POEM! this poem relates to me and my boyfriend so much. im not allowed to have a boyfriend yet so our relationship is still a secret. he said hed wait as much as it took.
Kevin, I just wanted to say that the poem was sweet and i was in the same situation but my parents finally seen how much the guy liked me and allowed me to date him im hoping that maybe her parents will see the same thing but if there not then i would have to say that you should wait because the best things are worth waiting for.
I've been in this girl's position and my ex has been in urz. i think if you really like this girl then its worth the wait. and you know..if you prove to her that you do feel the way you say and will stick around you'll be sure to win her heart over. Much propz to you and this poem and good luck!
I think that this poem shows that no one leaves your heart and there can always be a next's harder to cry then hold your head up high and this is his way of's Great!
what is there to say,i LOVED THE POEM ,ITS GREAT,I can relate to that.LOVED IT!
hey man, i know what it feels like . i seriously wish you the best cuz dis has happned to me but its to late now to speak up. i better go cuz am crying.
That is the sweetest poem ever and i envy the girl it is about I really hope you two are together forever its nice to see guys feel this way for us girls your a real sweety!
i liked your poem alot i was in the same situation i'm the girl who can't date and lost this great guy who i really liked but let her reach her age and maybe you two can be.
I love this poem because it reflects what alot of people feel, including me, not being able to have someone because of restrictions or parents, or even because of unsure feelings. I give this poem a ten.
Kevin~ I think its really great that you feel this way about this girl.and i think its awesome that a guy can express his feelings this way. Most guys think the're too good for it or that its dumb. And i also think its great that you understand that her not being able to date you isnt her fault. You're one of the few good guys out there. Good Job.
LOVE IT heaps cool!
To read this poem it makes me look into my own relationship... it's so similar, except I am the girl feeling this. My parents played a major role in breaking my love up. Thanks, it makes me feel good to know that there are guys out in the world who can express their feelings so well, and keep it sweet while in the process. Thank you Kevin.
