Past Kisses (poem)

Updated on April 24, 2014

Remember kisses we shared in our past

Two youthful lovers in stardust were cast

No signpost in sight how long this would last

Just minds set awhirl and hearts beating fast


Each day brought meaning a gentle contrast

Our eyes couldn’t see if dark clouds were massed

Our Joy and a kiss warm shelter would be

And so hand in hand enchantments we passed


Then in a spring time this question so vast

Will you take this ring and wear it for me

There I would learn about infinity

And when you said yes such images blast


And our years would pass so happy and free

As each morning past new dreams we would see

Each look in your eyes a new fantasy

But what paid the cost for all this to last


Remembering back the answer would flee

Something had changed mid eternal glee

Our grandeur and laughter they paid the fee

Past kisses faded into memory

      Beautiful as always, Mh. It is good to have those wonderful memories, especially of that first kiss. Although, the kisses are no more, at least they were there and it is a blessing to have known love and experienced it at some point in this life, as many do not.

      Up and more and away
