Saying Hello Again

He didn’t know

Why it was so

She seemed so content

At first their love

Was like a blessing

Life was full of joy

And they were together

And it seemed so much like love

Then things seemed to change

As he kissed her

There was a faraway look in her eyes

He told her he loved her

But there was no reply

Days came and went

And it seemed as if she was drifting away

But when he looked at her

She only smiled

He dreaded to ask her

As long as she stayed by his side

He was willing to hold her

Not worrying about tomorrow

As long as she stayed

He was happy

But his heart trembled

And slowly began to ache


Then came the day

When she was so thoughtful

He was sure that she would say

Farewell to him and fly away

Far from the love he had to share

But the time passed

And still she was here

Finally when he felt

That things were so unbearable

He turned to her

As they sat beneath the starry sky

He looked deep into her eyes

And he asked her why

Why was she like this?

Why was her love

Not radiating for him

And he told her of the ache

He held deep inside

At first she was so thoughtful

Then finally she confessed

Her heart had been captured

By someone else

But as the days passed

She realized

That her home was with him

And not anyone else

So while she had been considering

To tell him good-bye

She had come to realize

That she wanted once again

To say hello to him

Once again to start anew

To begin loving once more

As he listened he began to smile

The storm was over

The sun had come out

And love could begin once more

Once again to start anew

To begin loving once more

As he listened he began to smile

The storm was over

The sun had come out

And love could begin once more

Hope you are all enjoying a hot and sunny summer day. You know that at the very beginning here on HPs I was terrified to see the comments. Really I was because I didn't know how you would like me and my poetry. Now I eagerly look for each comment and they make me smile. It's like getting an Oscar with each comment and thinking, They like me, they really do. Thanks.

Thank you Bill. Glad you enjoyed this. Perhaps this summer will give me lots more inspiration.

ha! was glad she didn't leave again. This made another interesting love read. Sometimes, this thing called love is very hard to understand. Well, I am glad she changed her mind cos the man would have had another sad face like the one in the last poem I read. Another wonderful write, Gypsy.
