Every Now And Again

Every now and again
I look at you,
Captured there in a moment,
Smiling,
Mid sentence,
Mine,
The way I remember you.
And I think of those days
Those days
Those days when we were young,
Those days when all we needed,
And all we had,
Was each other and a dream

Every now and again
I think of late night talks,
And starry island nights
And promises made,
If not to you
At least to me,
And if not believed by you
At least by me,
Only to be dismissed in later days,
Alone,
And seen,
As you did back then,
As romantic notions
Dreamed of
In romantic places.

Every now and again
I look at you,
And wonder,
And pause,
And drift away,
And feel that old familiar feeling.
But all too soon it fades,
Surrendering to another pause,
One that reminds of today,
And yesterdays that are gone,
Put away like your photographs,
And memories
That can only be relived
Briefly.

    Tim,
    Keep the dream alive.
    Moment snapshots in the mind – marvellous, comforting, strengthening.
    Onward, because love is stronger than death.

  3. A wonderful description of past love . . . not forgotten, just put away.

  4. It’s about time you wrote something new! Well done.

  5. I like it! I love the description of nostalgia and the memories of love. Can’t wait to find my own special someone and spend my life with her. Thanks for sharing!
