Some Other Time (poem)

What was it that my heart forgot to see

That cast you out to stand within the rain

Some other time such madness I’d restrain

Some other time I’d hold you close to me


How could sweet love have blossomed into pain

What we set loose our future pays the fee

Some other time a kiss who would set us free

Some other time when nothing we’d explain


Recall those times when laughter eased our fall

Those times when every tear was one of Joy

Some other time when we were in our prime


Alone you cry now waiting for my call

Those raindrop now a memory destroy

While I am wishing for some other time

Sad yet poignant. I love the photo you chose to go with this poem. My heart breaks for this type of situation. The flow of the poem, sonnet, is beautiful.

You can't keep living in the past, otherwise you will be doomed to be unhappy forever.

Sad and poignant. Sometimes thinking back is a pleasure, other times it feels like torture.

I guess that's what falling out of love is all about.

Love has a way of making us happy or sad. We have to move on from the pain and embrace new beginnings. Lovely,poem albeit tinged with sadness. A true poet you are.

Mh, I missed this one, maybe when I was away in the hospital. I am glad I found it, although it makes the heart hurt and that video just adds to the tears falling. You were still on the kissing poetry, I see.

Yes, remember when . . . time is a funny thing isn't it dear one.

Voted Way up God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
