Beyond Expectations (a poem)

Source

Lying here

I think of you

so far away

gone from me.


It was as a dream

of everything

so near

too perfect

it must not be.


My fantasy

lies hidden

in this dream

long gone.


Love is now

but a memory

of time passed

moments spent.


One day

for some time

it was beyond

anything imagined.

I love this, though I find it a bit bittersweet... reminiscing always is though!

Up, beautiful and awesome!

You are so sweet and encouraging. Sometimes something happens that triggers a bad memory and I start to feel bad, but writing it out really helps me feel better.

That's one of the beauties of writing, I have a journal of poems; one night... I was so down, I wrote 13! :-) When people write and share... it helps others get through their moments... we are not alone! :D

I have been there, too, so I understand, as well. Good work, and I hope it brings inner peace.

I know the feelings. Everyone can relate to this. One way of releasing the sad truth is to write it and share.
