Unsaid (poem)

So many things remained unsaid

When to my arms a dream was shed

Soon all the world was her instead

As in her eyes tomorrow spread

-

There was the sun There was the light

The source of everything so right

Such fantasies could she ignite

That stardust learned to paint the night

-

Our days of wonder sight unsaid

The flow of time made minutes right

Another memory ignite

As promises of Joy were spread

-

Imagination was our light

A world so real we quickly shed

To form a realm of love instead

Which set us sailing toward that night

-

There was no form to magic spread

We spent our all on dreams instead

And when our final kiss was shed

So many things remained unsaid

So very sorrowful.

Would we ever have it all said when facing a final good bye?

So very tender, your poem; so very sad, the thought.

So very beautiful, this poem.

A very sad testimony of lives wasted in the attempt to love. Well done Martin.

Mhatter, I can relate. So often the words come too late. I love both the message and the rhythm in the poem.

So many things are left unsaid and the remembrance can bring sadness, but some things are better left unsaid, too. Love your poem.

So sad when things are left unsaid. I think many of us have a story like this at some time in our life. Beautifully written :-)

Sometimes that is what can ruin love when things are left unsaid.
