The Tree (poem)

Updated on December 18, 2012

Remember where you kissed when you where young?

Is this the tree which hid us when we’d kiss

Those summer days now very far away

That scent of flowers isn’t here today

Just fond reminders of the things we miss


The pulse of passion passing mid your leaves

Two helpless hearts so lost amid the flow

Exploring dreams of realms we didn’t know

Captured in the splendor of the web love weaves


From then till now those feelings linger on

Though time and couple are no longer there

So special is the meaning of that pair

That on forever are those moments drawn


This is the tree which brought love to our view

Just close your eyes and you will feel it too

      Love's old sweet song. Poignant and sad, memories of young love, and the couple is no more there.

      Streisand and Redford - Hollywood couldn't have paired two more beautiful people to be the young lovers torn apart by different ideals. That was one of my favorite movies, watched a few times and always with a few sheets of Kleenex.

      Memories of young love are so bitter-sweet. Thank you, Mhatter, for reminding me.

      A wonderful tribute to young love Martin, bringing back memories to many I'm sure.

      Very sweet. There's something about kissing and being with the one you love when in nature. It seems to make it more free and beautiful.
