Poem : I will forget you someday

I will forget you someday

You said “Hi!”

I said “Yes?”

You asked “What is your name?”

I asked, “But why?”

I felt so stupid

I am just curious”, you said

Then I gave you my name

My name is Lyera


Thank you“, you responded

Then added, “What a beautiful name!”

I looked at you

You were the first person to tell me that aside from my mother“, I said

I said “Thank you” and bowed my head

You said “Can I have your number?“

But why, isn’t my name enough?, I don’t give them to strangers

I am not a stranger anymore, my name is Othie,” you said

And so?” I responded

You laughed at me

Are you angry or mad” you asked

I said, “No, why should I be

You just shook your head and you smiled at me

I felt I am a weird and smiled back

You have a beautiful smile, and I like your eyes

They are big black eyes and are penetrating, lovely” you said again

Okay here is my number”,  I said and smiled back

That was the beginning

Of a love I once experienced

A love that was so pure

So intense and so warm

I thought it would last forever

I was just dreaming

I woke up this morning

And I touched my bedside

I though I felt something there

But you were gone

All that was left was my love and the memories

Bitter sweet memories

That’s all there is to it

How is it that love could be so easy

And forgetting is too long

How is that when I look everywhere

Your memory is still here

And you continue to haunt me

Maybe one day, I can forget you

Like I forget how many winters passed by

Surely the spring will give me hope

Until next summer again

By then I shall have forgotten you!

Great poem, Maita. Letting go is not easy, because if it was, then the the entire relationship was insignificant. Sunny days are just ahead :)

It's true, Maita... I like that line, "Love could be so easy and forgetting is too long." How could that be? Hmmm...I really like to blurt it out now, but I can't. It's a long story to tell. My husband might stumble across this comment of mine.

Thanks for sharing. Nice poem, Maita... I love it!

Haunting memories, they come and go. Rather than forgetting, it's better to concentrate on now, and on making now as sweet as you can. Peace, PDH

*sigh* you just made me remember a love lost and Joey Albert's song - I Remember the Boy, But I Don't Remember the Feelings Anymore. Hope it will be like that with you - you won't forget but you won't feel the pain anymore. Lovely poem Maita. :)

Great poem Maita! Boy, isn't it hard to forget sometimes. Especially if you are still exposed to the things that use to have meaning when you were a couple. Like the smell of his cologne, favorite meal, and etc. But, there is one thing that will make you forget that person and that is a new love. :)

It has to be better to have loved and lost.

Otherwise we live in the dark all the time.

I guess a past love can even cast some illumination at times.

Thanks for dropping by "my place".

Thanks for the kind words.

Another Sweet Poem, Sweet Maita. Yes, memories are forever, yet I feel that such encounters should be committed to verse and song. I wrote a little song about one with a message. I know that you will understand.

'Silent Invitation'

First time I stop to read your poems! What a beautiful and a sad thing at the same time! Why, life can be so hard sometimes, but you learned and you grew inside! Love will come. Do not seek for it, it will kneel before you, when you let go! Trust me, deary!

Thumbs up!

Warmest regards and infinite eternal blessings,

Very Nice Maita.. bit of a dark horse with poetry huh? We have all been here and it's ok to give your heart away.. But Not your phone number lol. And as far forgetting is concerned..forget it! Don't punish yourself, love is not designed to be a power to forget. That is what determines the depth of the emotion. Thanks for sharing PDH. Take care.

You have a talent Prettydarkhorse, for writing exactly what you need to write so your reader can join you in your special and intimate journey - I loved the way you used dialogue and so cleverly and convincingly - I was there when you met and I heard the words too and felt how you felt . . . so I know now how you feel since this love stopped . . . except it hasn't has it PDH - it is still there - in your heart and in your heart's memories, all the ones you shared with all of your friends who read your words.

Thank you - I am wondering though; your poetry is beautiful but have you ever thought of writing this love-experience as a story? There is novel there and I would read it for sure.

Maita - well he was only speaking the truth - you do have a beautiful name! And no mater how you felt when he left, you were able to experience that wonderful feeling of love. You gave that love and from so much I have read your work, are a very loving person. You only lost that one guy. But you still hold that love in your heart. You win!

Just the title was enough to summon deep emotions. It's sad to have someone pass through your life who so profoundly impacted you yet because of all our human failings cannot be there forever. Maybe forever is something that should be discarded... that way we can make today important.... I wonder if I've been forgotten... I can assure you that he won't forget you...

Not to dash your hopes of forgetting, but it's been 20 years and I still remember her. The way she smiled, the way she smelled, the way she made me feel. It fades a bit, but it's still there like a shadow that won't leave your side. It fades in the darkness, but it's always still just behind you.

Voted up and beautiful.

I can feel your pain by your poems, you are one of the girls whose really hard to get. So i believe that you love him so much. And then leave you at the end.

I know someday you will forget him, time heals everything.

Exhibiting respect in the direction of your husband or wife is very important to building a robust marriage and staying away from issues in marriage. A wedding lacking regard is just not a happy situation and produces marriage problems that might damage the relationship. Giving and Obtaining regard is significant to any profitable marriage and is particularly primarily legitimate in marriage. When couples marry they may be commonly expecting it to become for living. Regard of every other is among the simplest strategies to where husbands meet san diego discuss marriage problems and have a long-lasting marriage.

Several of us might not present respect due to the fact we are waiting on our spouse to indicate the correct number of regard to us. Regrettably that reaction does very little to further improve the relationship and could make more complications in marriage. Indicate regard to your partner even though you are feeling they may be falling quick while in the respect spot. Giving your partner regard could suggest that your spouse will begin to show a lot more respect in the direction of you. Respecting your husband or wife indicates that you simply price them to be a partner and to be a man or woman and is also far more likely to acquire a constructive reaction than anger, irritability or withdrawal.

Unpleasant attitudes and conduct by your spouse can be the result of sensation disrespected, unappreciated, and unloved. Chances are you'll be amazed how exhibiting respect can decrease relationship challenges and alter the course within your relationship

How you can give regard:

• Compliment your husband or wife routinely

• All through an argument discuss respectfully and reduce the emotion stage

• Don't lash out, will not sulk or pout

• Regard your spouse's perspective. Generally or gut reaction would be to reject views that differ from our own. Exhibit regard for your spouse by listening and accepting their correct to possess their own standpoint.

• Do not give your spouse orders. If you would like them to try and do anything question them, not demand

• When conversing with your husband or wife pay attention to the things they should say, make eye make contact with any time you are listening or talking to them.

A method of demonstrating respect would be to give a significant priority on the relationship as well as your connection. Have conversations with each other about other issues apart from your sons or daughters. Parents must go on dates with each other and organize by yourself time devoid of the children.. This strengthens a couple's romance with one another. Great relationships among mom and dad give small children a sensation of safety and they are reassuring to them.

Indications of marital disrespect:

1. Yelling screaming and belittling your partner is simply not a successful method to construct a robust marriage. It is a solution to make to get a horrible relationship.

two. Dominating the discussion and not enabling your wife or husband the opportunity to precise on their own in non-public or in the social options

3. If one particular human being feels they are really often appropriate it diminishes the opposite human being and doesn't replicate that you just respect them or their views

four. Making vital loved ones choices without having talking about it with your husband or wife

five. Not giving your spouse the courtesy of listening whenever they are speaking to you

Many relationship problems originate from not respecting how gentlemen and women differ. Men and ladies reply to several points in different ways. Girls are frequently additional verbal than guys and so are extra into expressing their thoughts. Males usually are not typically as verbal in expressing their feelings or emotions. It can be critical to regard the differences.

This poem is beautiful. I liked the line "And forgetting is too long" you have nicely emoted through those beautiful lines. It actually takes very long. The problem doubles because even though you are hurt ,you are still forgiving and that makes it rather more difficult to let go.
