Still in Love

The past, it seems just out of touch Our sunshine smiles have dimmed I know love’s there, still feel the rush What is this place we’re in? Oh, can we surface long enough To free us from the dark? I know time’s gone and life gets rough We can still ignite the spark, so Remind me How it was when we were young Of all those songs that we would hum How the sky had seemed so blue And how I always turned to you Show me How it all can be today How like kids, we still can play With the smiles we both possess All the love that we confess We then can be Two lovers, still in love Just you and me Our lives’ routines have taken hold Imprisoned in its cell Not free to age as was foretold Under our lovers’ spell But, if we try we can be free To learn to be again The lovers that we seemed to be The many years back then, so Remind me How it was when we were young Of all those songs that we would hum How the sky had seemed so blue And how I always turned to you Show me How it all can be today How like kids, we still can play With the smiles we both possess All the love that we confess We then can be Two lovers, still in love Just you and me

    I think inside, we all mourn the loss of youthful passion, but what grows in it's place is pretty good too. Congratulations on your win Michael

    Micheal I think we all go thru the phase where we look for the love we had when we were younger. I know you go thru good times and bad times and you have to rekindle that love. Like this poem for it is so true . love phyl
