I Thought I Knew (poem)

Updated on June 20, 2013

I thought I knew the meaning of the day

To kiss a dream and dance along her shore

Till heaven came and swept my heart away

-

Each breath a greater wonder came my way

And to this purpose all I was I swore

I thought I knew the meaning of the day

-

Each passion moments fashioned my array

Enchantment I would pour along her floor

Till heaven came and swept my heart away

-

Her silent eyes would question my display

Was this the answer she was searching for

I thought I knew the meaning of the day

-

Too blind was I hear what sighs did say

As tears of time were heavy gems she wore

Till heaven came and swept my heart away

-

And now so lost in yesterdays I stray

To wish that I had listen to her more

I thought I knew the meaning of the day

Till heaven came and swept my heart away

      Dear Martin,

      This touched my heart as these feelings have been experienced by me as well. You just have a way to put into words real feelings.

      I have lived long enough to feel remorse for some things that I have done, and long enough to feel regret for things I did not do.

      You speak from the heart, everyday.

      Your words bring back the essence of love in its purest form.

      And, some days, your words leave me with an ache deep inside.

      Oh, this is stunningly beautiful filled with love for those past days when one good do things over, but now too late. This may be my new favorite : )

      Very dramatic. In this day, it is a good reminder to us all to tell the ones we love just how we feel each and every day, as we may not have a tomorrow.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper
