After So Long - Poem

Updated on July 25, 2013

Need You Now

Our life is made up of memories that impact who we are.

After So Long

There’s an aching deep inside me

A longing for your touch

And the memories I have of you

Make me miss you so much


How funny in the daylight

Things don’t look the same

But darkness reminds us

Of how we both played the game


Pain seems to lessen

As the years go by

Funny how your memory

Can still make me cry


Small things bring you back to me

A smell, a thought, a song

But then I regain my senses

And I’m relieved that you are gone


Too painful was the life we had

Too many things went wrong

So why do I still think of you -- after so long?

      Wow Leptirela, I am honored and humbled at such high praises.

      What I write comes from the deep memories and strong emotions of my life. As someone once said, "Write what you know."

      That is simply what I do.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      I found myself feeling every single word in this hub.

      This is so touching, as I mentioned before you have such power with words, sometimes its so hard to get the right word to describe such depth and you have a great way with this I hope with time to come I can be as good as you with words!

      I totally feel this and relate to it so much.

      Amazing!

      I dont know what else I could say , it would not be enough to praise you to your level.

      You are an amazing soul!

      Could not have said it better. That is what make us who we are.

      Love is a very powerful thing, and when we give ourselves over completely to someone, that love binds us to them eternally. Even though we may not be with that person in the flesh, there is a part of our spirit that remains joined to them, and them to us.

      It's so hard to let go sometimes. Just when you think you are getting over someone a song reminds you of them or you find an old picture. Love bites the big one sometimes.

      The verses that come to us from out of nowhere are our most beautiful, and this is proof of that. When inspiration happens so suddenly, it is our hearts and souls that we put into words, rather than a series of letters and lines.

      I give you kudos for rhythm and rhyme. It's a shame that there are so few poets that write this way. Certainly a lovely read :)

      This is one of those "rare" verses that came to me, seemingly, out of the blue. Perhaps you are right, those ties are stronger than we realize, and maybe it wasn't out of the blue this came, but out of the heart.

      Thanks for your encouragement.
