Life and a Love

We were children
You made such
A first impression
Your eyes said much
Had such expression
Without a word spoken
I felt such a connection
I would have taken you
As a knight or a prince would do
To some place magical and yet real
It was so compelling in my soul
For you had sown love there
It was not for us to be together
Not my choice
But life and parents and decisions
It is oddly wonderful after all this time
I remember you as you were
As I know you still are
Life and circumstances
They dictate the way things are
But they do not necessarily dictate much else
Certainly not the future
I choose to hang on to the hope
That I will get a chance
To be your knight or your prince
Or just plain old me
Which you will find is not plain at all
That is my love
That is what I offer you

Hi Regis,

I really enjoyed reading 'Life and a Love.' I think it is deep, touching rhythmic and as usual, very original.

Regis, I know the agony our souls go through and the pain our hearts suffer under these conditions. There is no greater agony to be experienced. I am currently living much of this human tragedy. May love and peace be with you. Jon Michael

This is the kind of love poem that makes all of us girls wish we were that special person. Uniquely, beautifully written.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 5/23/2015
Almost sounds like a world-class opera, the words are so profound. There is such PASSION within the lines of this very well-written poem.
