Come Again

It was the first time I fell in love With brown eyes, big smiles…funny face Miles and miles of words exchanged And so few remembered Thinking it would last a lifetime Excitement growing, a spoonful of sugar Straight into the mouth Dissolved all the same Happy memories char me with grief A photo captured but never seen For they never come again As you do Pen, paper A rose, the best gift I ever received Never should have eaten that lollipop You were right, it was the wrong time But it made you smile so sublime Chubby red face glistens in the sunlight We were so young and bright “Bye buddy!” Laughter becomes muddy A dance we never danced Green grass . . . brown coat Swimming pool Nothing left but a frumpy moat An empty spoon that still shines Though nothing received They never come again As you do What I remember most Is that shiny red nose When you laugh, I often see it again But you are with others And it is still truly beautiful See, some visions last But emotions ever change And thoughts flee and live again Come again And you may remember some blue green eyes Maybe I should have never said goodbye

    Ah yes indeed that lost love. Reminds of a girl I fell in love with in high school. 40 years later I still think about her. Great write. And of course now you know how old I am...dang it. :) ~Kilmer

    My goodness how much I can relate to this!!! I keep seeing 2008 flash before my eyes as I read this. Real love is real, even if it isn't reciprocated. If their heart's want for you equals yours for them, it'll intertwine...for good. Otherwise, grow your wings and fly on..."some visions last, but emotions never change" <--- agreed. Wholly. It's wonderful to read you again. May your heart go up from here...
