Those memories of her, now bittersweet
Recalling tender moments that we shared
Young lovers' dreams which time can not defeat
Is proof down deep inside how much I cared

My pining heart still yearns for yesterday
To taste those honey kisses once again
Her dark brown eyes that always seemed to say
The love she had for me would never end

But that is where my recollection fades
As fate stepped in and steered her love away
The passing years created such a haze
What caused our love to die has now decayed

I wonder if she ever thinks of me
With fondness, like my treasured memories



  an original poem by Daniel Turner "Poemdog"
       written for Becca Teagan but not for contest

Beautiful and soulful memories shared, Daniel. This one I like a lot. It shows that everyone has beauty and love deep within their heart that is sometimes not noticed or seen when things change. Thanks for reminding me of what the other partner could feel as well. It heals. I love the title too. Sharon : )

Sharon,by looking at your icon, you look as if you have broken a few hearts:) I think we all have those memories of a long ago love and from time to time something will spark their memory. We wonder, do they think about me. Yes, they do. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and share your thoughts. It means a lot to me.

You reckon she still thinks about you, Mike? In fondness? I'm sure she does. I think we all do, not with vanity but with love. The heart never forgets a gentle touch. Thanks for dropping by Mike. It means a lot to me.

If I was in school it might draw a C+ or a B-. I would say average. I'm no Shakespeare. LOL Thank you though, Wing Man, I really appreciate the high praise and I always look forward to our next visit:)

Thank you Andrea. You are partly responsible for teaching me about meter, so now I am thanking you. I am certain from time to time, we all relive a yesterday and wonder "what if?" The best part is, we can answer it any way we like.

I read your comment to Becca - I miss Lin so much Daniel she is such a talented writer - she would be so so proud of you with this wonderful write. I still struggle with sonnets, but like you have wonderful people here to help me on the right path:-) hugs Jan xx 7

I miss her, too, Jan. I still talk to her on occasion. I never forget a friend! Thank you for the wonderful comments and for mentioning our friend:):)

Mr Turner, This is an excellent bookmark for those who say they struggle with meter. There was a time when we all did (most find it impossible), but few have mastered it as you have here, and better yet to be written with a truly romantic yet self-effacing tinge that grips the heart. A perfect volta in line 9. I love everything about this sonnet!

Thank you. I wrote my very first sonnet in Feb of this year. With the help of many people here in the soup and some no longer here, I learned how to write sonnets. I kept doing it over and over. You can see just by looking at my list of poems. Mastered (hardly) but I do understand. Thank you for your wonderful comments.

Such a lovely Sonnet, Daniel. I agree with Becca that it fits all the requirements for excellent meter, rhyme, and good enjambment. 7 Sandra
