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

      I miss my paradise of love, so very much.

      Never really believed it would ever die.

      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?
