There Once More

That sad day when you said, "It's just not there"
Such sentiments seemed pulled out of the air
For many months we'd loved and lived as one
Sharing dreams under the Florida sun

Our hopes were cast like nets into the sea
Never did I think they'd come up empty
What caused this shift was not for me to know
As 'neath the rays I wallowed far below

Searching for answers, wiping tears from my eyes
I longed to make sense, but reason defied
Until I found the hidden doctor's note
And learned your survival now seemed remote

I fought my way back into your strong arms
To stand again with you and ease the harm

    Wow. Such emotion said. This piece is truly worthy of god-like status compared to my unorganized teen-age love writes. Congratulations you have achieved my dream!

    Wow Carolyn, the irony of Love! Reminds me of O Henry! The depth of love is not always visible to the naked eye, it has to be felt in the soul! Beautiful!!! Love Jeralynn

    Carolyn this is utter devotion and it truly stands to hold meaning to I will stand by my man through thick and thin and across the highest mountain until my time here on earth is done, Thank you for sharing this with all of us here in the poetry community because it just shows that there are still a few people out there in the world that believe in true and utter devotion. Have a wonderful weekend.Dean
