Paradise Times (poem)

Updated on February 2, 2015

Upon a night not long ago

We sat and watched a fire fair glow

While sharing moments we loved so

And lost ourselves amid the flow

-

This time we spent in paradise

Where dreams were themes made to entice

For chances which would not come twice

And kisses cast were oh so nice

-

Such moments made in times ago

Rich splendor stars we would entice

We’d fly away and not think twice

And live forever in time’s flow

-

But fragile was this paradise

Whose magic luster was our glow

How is it we forgot it so

Were kisses cast that oh so nice

-

And now we’re lost in strange new flow

That paradise we miss it so

And yet we live amid its glow

Upon a night not long ago

      You say it with elegance and charm.

      I say it stinks!

      Martin, it seems your poems are about lost love or love lost. Are you living alone or feeling lonely?
