Don't You Remember You Told Me You Loved Me?

Updated on June 22, 2008

Where Did He Go?


in a period of time so long ago

upon reflection, was it only yesterday?

a chance meeting

a first date

a first embrace

a first kiss

leading to the inevitible

two bodies connecting in the most intimate way

producing from a love so strong, a family

a life full of dreams

a life full of promise

time goes on

we grow

we love

we fight

we stand united

we stand apart

only to find ourselves

despite everything

still growing


and still together

still whole

one day

in the blink of an eye

the world as I know it

falls apart

everything I've known

everything I've loved

is over

gone forever

never to be recovered

but alas, never forgotten

standing there with my eyes closed tight

praying it's just a nightmare

and I will awaken from this horror

but my eyes fly open

I look around, he is not there

he will never be there again

reality hits

the unthinkable has happened

my partner

the love of my life

my reason for being


ripped from my life

as though it never was

that it never happened

did I imagine it all?

was it only a young girl's dream?

no, it was real

it was meaningful

and it was to be forever

why him, 36 years young?

why me, 37 years young?

and still, 22 years later, wondering,

will there ever be an answer?

      Hi Gwendy,

      I wrrote this in one of my down moments.  Even after 22 years, I still get them now and then, which is natural I suppose.

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting, I appreciate it :)

      Hi Terry,

      Isn't it interesting sometimes the path we find ourselves on? There's an expression I'm sure you've heard, that says when the student is ready the teacher will appear. I love that because it is true. Who really knows why we work where we do, meet the people we meet, share a chance conversation with someone. Life can be mysterious. I'm very glad you've enjoyed reading my hubs. I really enjoy writing them. If it helps one person, it's worth it.

      Thanks again for commenting.

      I think it was God;s will that I chanced to read your hubs today. Our lives so similar in this respect that I cannot hold back the tears as I read. I guess as someone just said some of us are destined to share just moments here and eternity hereafter.

      Awww, thanks Shades. Yes, it was a sad time in my life, but one I survived. It just didn't turn out like the script in my mind.

      Thanks for stopping by,

      hi dayzeebee,

      Many fond memories are held within not only the mind, but the heart as well. I often refer to the saying I love in my above reply.

      thanks for your kind words and stopping by,

      Hi Phillip,

      Thank you so much. There is an expression I love, that I have hanging in my room, and it says 'God gave us memories so we could gather flowers in the winter'. So, it is true, our loved ones never really die as long as they live in our minds and hearts.

      Thanks for stopping by,

      We are blessed with fleeting moments. Hold on to them. In the end, that's all we can take with us.
