Sometimes, we don't know what we have, until it is too late.

A Way Back Into Love

Hearts, sweet from high school,

No one else existed.

The time arrived. I left for A Better Life.

Parting brought no sweetness,

Only sorrow.

We wrote. We called. We were still together,

Distance did not seem to matter.

She came, we found that

The other side of the world

Was nothing between us.

Despite my mistake, we found it,

A way back into love.

For life.


Years later,

Thrill gone, the spur of the moment no longer an option.

It all has to be paid for.

We no longer fall asleep on the beach,

She falls asleep where she lies,

I fall asleep as far away as I can.

Neither of us can see, though we try,

Where Commitment became "commitments".

Forever became a sentence. For life.

Years later,

She is gone.

The distance seems like the other side of the world.

My mistakes have counted, more than I knew.

I would give it all.

I'm leaving for a better way,

Away, back into love.

Well writetan , the poem to me shows that love , reil love lives on . Savives time & distance. Tho the two pepole are no longer togeater the felimgs of love , the embers of that love. Are still buernig with in. to quote Shakespear I think , '' 'tis beter to have loved , than never to have loved at all.
I look forward to reading more from you.
