About Lost Love

I have lived a true romance,
meeting my love at the art gallery one winter day,
        I adore art and writing poetry (the art gives me inspiration)
                he liked to draw pictures of art.
        My family was considered poor
and he was educated and a traveler of the world,
my life at the time was mindless 
                               with no real future . . . 
                One evening, he took me to a movie
       and that movie is forever meaningful to me,
the next day, my love gave me a blue heart pendant
                my own heart of the ocean 
        and I still wear it as a memory of him . . . 
Oh, he believed in making each moment special- "kiss me"
he whispered the first time our lips met, and
                I felt like I was flying and he said,
                             "I will always love you . . ." 
        We lost a baby along our journey, 
                            holding each other in tears . . . 
Then, one winter day he crashed his car through ice
and a thousand daggers pierced my heart . . .  and still do.
                If he could talk to me
         in that dying gasp-  he would have said,
"oh my darling I am so sorry  . . . "
     It was called an accident due to icy conditions,
                                   I am not so sure . . . .
                I call his name in dreams,
      and I will never, ever let go of this love-  
                             my heart is a deep ocean of pain
I go often to a grave upon a hill, passing the rows and rows
 with red roses for
         lost love,  but I keep one rose, just one rose
                   for a little baby grave,
my other lost love . . . 
                             and hidden birds sing in the trees .

Such a sad and heartbreaking poem my friend. A love like that is something never to be forgotten and I am sure his last thoughts were of you.
