Knowing You Are in This World

Knowing you’re in this world

makes it easier to bear

having a shoulder to cry on

having someone who cares

Time flies and we don’t connect

I like to think that somewhere

you and I are dreaming

and looking up at the same stars

Wonderful to know

that you are around

I’ll be sure to hear from you

read your email and smile

In the meantime

my dreams bring you to me

where we are together

sitting side by side

Perhaps one day

we’ll meet once more

just name the time and place

and I’ll fly to your side

Funny how things in this world

never go according to plan

we should be together you and I

but an ocean separates us

There was a time

when knowing you were mine

made my heart glow

my smile so very bright

But things cannot always be right

and time marches on

changing things along the way

separating lovers and friends

Friends like you are a treasure

so I will remember you forever

look up at the heavens

say thank you that you’re in this world with me

A lovely poem and Petula Clark for a bonus. That's a win/win situation. :)

Beautiful poem about a long distance love/friendship. I like that Petula Clark song too..."Colour My World."

I just cannot let distance and time diminish my love. Change it maybe. I really liked this work thanks for sharing it with us.

O yes...a connection like this is a wondrous and lovey experience. I am so thankful for those who touched my life on many levels and relish the moments when I hear from them.

Wonderfully shared....

Angels are on the way to you this wee hour

Looking up at the same stars; being together or apart. How transitory are things and the good sometimes disappear or move on ... never going to plan ...

Sharing the same sky and the same memories. Love and friendship always lives on in our heart.

This is beautiful, Rasma. I love the part about looking up at the same stars even though an ocean separates the friends. Often I wonder, as I look up in the sky, if people from my past are doing the very same thing at that very moment and thinking of me. It's really pretty amazing when you think about it.

My apologies to you all for my late reply. I was ill all the past week. I appreciate your comments and glad you enjoy my poetry.

So very true Mary.

It sure is Shauna and I think in a way it brings us all closer together in the heart where it truly matters.

Thank you Genna.

Thank you Audrey.

Sorry to hear you were ill, Gypsy. Hope you're getting better. A couple more went down with the cold in the USA. But you're in Latvia, I believe. Much Love.
