I Would Like to Fall In Love Again

You once said that you love me And would be proud to be my wife And the love that grows inside Would do so for all your life You once said that you adore me And all the little things I do And the best things of all Were those things I do to you Now, I sleep in the guest room And you hardly speak to me And those few words you do say Are full of apathy I can’t remember our last kiss And you cringe upon my touch I’m not sure when the love left But it’s abandoned both of us I would like to fall in love again And I would like my lover to be you Do you think we can re-spark the flame Given all that we’ve been through I know that I’ve grown old and fat And no longer have my hair But I know that the love I felt Still festers down in there You once said that you love me I once responded back in kind Do you think the adoration lost Is something we can find Do you think that the joy we felt Enwrapped in each other’s arms Is something these old folks can find Or is it now long gone I would like to fall in love again And I would like my lover to be you I would like to find the joy again That the two of us once knew

Rekindling love is not that takes two to tango! [I agree with Charles:)] enjoyable poem, although on the sad side. // paul

what a heartfelt write Joe. I think many people could relate to this when the spark has gone out of a relationship and you crave for how it once was. its a 7 from me:-) Hugs jan xxx

A very nice heart felt write that gets better as it goes on.Just 1 critisism. Stop using "and" to start lines. They are just filler words.
