The Love of My Life

The love of my life looked me in the eye
As if I was dreaming, he understood
Like the beat of an eagle's wing
I felt his pupils expanding in gentility
It was the very first day
I held his hand in mine
He remembered
He called me kind

The love of my life looked me in the eye
Like sun beaming from encompassed gloom
A feather flirting the fingertips
A splash of refreshing water
He understood. . .he understood
And every word was so clear and new!
It was the very first time
The connection sparked

The love of my life looked me in the eye
And then was gone in a week's time
His spirit slid away in bits, like sand 
Returning to distant lands
He never said goodbye
Those green eyes still ponder and shine
Leaving but remembering
All that was said

The love of my life looks me in the eye
As tears flow down my cheeks
I miss the gentle beat of the wing
I miss the way he speaks
The treasures we did share
Are now only a memory that I wear
The love of my life looks me in the eye
Only through a photograph. . .

    I hated it when my chemistry was there, but the other's was not. It was s a royal horrible pain, and you describe it so well. Tough for sensitive people who are ready for love. Ouch! I wish you success in this quest because you are a beautiful heart and fantastic poet.

    Oh, wow... It takes great talent to take your reader through such a range of emotion. The third verse is my favourite, even though it's very sad. But Caleb's right - that last line really carries a punch of emotion. You are one talented lady!
