Seeking a New Love

Updated on April 27, 2016

As the years

rolled on and silver strands

now peppered her hair

she remembered a time

so very long ago

when she had a special love

that was lost along the way

many a different love

had found his way into her heart

but in her mind

it was always that one special love

that was still deep within her heart

she had known it would be so

right from the start

often she wondered

if things had been different

perhaps she could have found him

although she doubted

if his love would ever have been true

day by day she felt sad and blue

oh, she knew that dwelling on a past love

made her not see very clearly

through the mist of tears

perhaps another love could heal

so she went on and on

always hoping

that before too much time had past

a real love would come along

with an eternal love

with passion and warmth

if only such a love

would find her in time

      There is always that one but in every relationship Shauna. I too have often wondered what would be different if... Then again since I found my soulmate I cannot complain. Then again with any of the other guys I would still be in my beloved homeland. Time will tell.

      As I sit reading this, with silver strands running through my hair, I thought about the one man in my life who could have been "the one" had circumstances been different so many years ago. We're still friends and often talk how we could have grown old together, instead of states apart, had we not screwed up when we were younger.

      Your poetry. S always so beautiful. It sounds to me like someone hoping for more eventually but settling for less for now.

      Thank you Kristen

      So very true. We always have to keep holding on to hope ValKaras.

      Thank you Eric

      You welcome Jamie

      That is true Cyndi. This poem was actually inspired by a friend who has a daughter in her 40s and who hasn't found her true love yet. She is always so worried about finding herself alone in this world.

      Thank you Cam

      Thank you Ruby

      Being hopeful is the best way to be Blossom

      Thank you Ms. Dora

      Thank you Genna. I am currently deleting poetry here that has been left gathering dust on a shelf somewhere in cyber world. So new, revamped and reborn pieces are on the way soon.

      Hi Rasma. I've been on an extended work sabbatical from HP for a few weeks, but one of the first hubbers I just had to visit upon my return was Gypsy and her poetry. There is a beautiful bittersweet sadness that is filled with hope in this gem that I liked very much. Your poems are food for the soul.

      First love almost always lingers. It helps when we learn to look forward. Beautiful sentiments!

      A lovely poem. We were created as hopeful and ever remain that way.

      Ahhh, that is what happens when we view people and events in our lives in retrospect. There's may be that one that got away and we wonder how things would have been if they were still in our lives. There's a danger in that, but in listening to the wisdom of others, pining for the past is most dangerous when the present is not what you want or thought it should be. It makes that past love seem all the more poignant. Your poem seems to tell us that we have to look at what's right in front of us without the veil of the past.

      Take care. Cyndi

      I feel that this narrator still has a chance to find the true love you describe so well in many of your other poems. Thank you for such a wonderful poem. Jamie

      For some reason through the hard I see the softness of hope. Wonderful poem

      Gypsy Rose - What would life be without hope? Indeed, now and then we see a flower breaking out from a crack in the concrete sidewalk; and just the same we never know what can come out from a part of our life that seems to be hardened and sterile. Yes, even a new love.
