Sat There Softly (poem)

Updated on December 2, 2012

He sat there softly gazing at the sky

With dreams of something passing through his head

For some tomorrow answers will be shed

But here and now just empty clouds float by


She sat there softly pondering the ground

As wishes weaved sweet songs amid her heart

Perhaps tomorrow fantasies will start

But until then her Joy with flowers found


They sat there softly drifting mid their love

Here life unleashes wonder on their soul

And in tomorrow will they still be whole

But warm embraces now they’re thinking of


Now empty is the place where lovers sat

For time and change have taken them away

It is tomorrow where these two now play

But yesterdays no place as soft as that

      Martin, what a sad journey the heart sometimes traverses. You touched on the beauty and sadness of love at the same time. And love carries both emotions, for it would not be love without.

      Stunning and rather lonesome. I only hope they are now sitting together on that bench.

      Mhatter, the beauty of poetry and the written word is that every perception is different. I love that about Shakespeare. Some people read it and think it's like fine wine, others think it's Pepsi Cola. I read this and thought it was about two people starting their lives together and the progression of life. I was reading the comments other people left and boy, I guess you can interpret writing any way you want. Nevertheless, it really is beautiful. You have an amazing gift and I'm glad you share it. -K

      There is indeed, no softer place than good memories. Perhaps why we return so often. Beautiful poetry Martin.

      Mhatter, so beautiful, with a touch of sadness at the end, "And in tomorrow will they still be whole" well, no one knows the answer to that, but they had yesterday and no one can take that away. always touching, always romantic, truly beautiful.

      Beautiful words. Simply breathtaking! The song just takes me away and suddenly, I'm in Paris. Voting up!

      The song talks about time and how it does heal all wounds, but to forget our love.... he keeps reiterating time. don't allow time to forget our love, my days will be filled with loneliness and nothing would really matter anymore. without you, there would be no more time left. listen to my pain. thanks to this person he has discovered pleasure. the silence between them he blames it on the effects of time, but to forget our love.. time, time and time.

      Mh, I love . . . "it is tomorrow where these two now play," very lovely as speaks of hope and dreams of the possibilities of the future. Patience in matters of the heart----so necessary I am assuming.

      The video is very passionate, romantic . . . even if I did not understand the words, and yet it still conveyed the dreamy message

      Voted up +++ and sharing

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
