That I Used to Know..
I remember when we met, you had just graduated high school, our love, it was so fresh. Although we would spend all day together, we couldn't wait for tommorow to see each other again. The night was so long it seemed like forever, sleep wouldn't come. I thought if I slept, for sure I would dream about you. In the morning, I tried to remember my dream about you, but quickly forgot about it because I wanted to call you right away and tell you good morning. What happened to the person that I used to know?
We were so in love we decided to move in together, before we got married, we made a commitment to each other. We did not have to go before anybody to tell us that we would always be together. We moved into a tiny apartment but we didn't care, we were happy just to be together. We each would go to work and didn't make much money , but couldn't wait to get home and eat and then make passionate love on our mattress on the floor. we didn't care that we were a young poor couple, struggling just to make it through the month. As long as we had each other. What happened to the person that I used to know?
We went through our life together thinking nothing could ever come between us. We went out together and saw all the other couples, cheat on each other, lie to each other. Not us, no, not us , we were so happy to have each other. We had complete trust in each other, I knew you would never leave me, you knew that I would never leave you. Although many women tried to lure me away, and many men tried to entice you with promises of a better life, we were happy as long as we had each other. What happened to the person that I used to know?
We have grown old together and instead of making love at night, we eat and then watch television.We live like sister and brother, you are on Facebook and I am on Hubpages, You have no interest in my poetry, I don't care who you connect with on your smart phone. We have our nice home, we have vacationed in Las Vegas, We have had many new cars, I have bought you more diamond jewelry than you could ever wear, we have done everything we ever wanted to do, yes... things that we never would have thought we would be able to do, back when we were a poor young struggling couple. Yes.... it's been a long winding road that we have walked together, the ups and downs, through sickness and in heath We are still, and will be together till death do us part. We still love each other but, What happened to us ? The people that we used to know !
Where is the love
that I used to know
How did we lose it
where did it go?
The passion, the energy
it was.. oh so sweet
now we don't look at each other
our eyes hardly meet.
Till death do us part
is what we said
but.. is this really living
or are we already dead.
