In the fading light of day
I allow my mind to wander
To those places from long ago
You and I belonged to each other
Inseparable, lives interwoven
Never wanting to let go
We would talk all night long
Putting right to the world
Falling asleep in each other’s arms
Making plans and dreaming dreams
Fighting for what was right
Smitten with each other’s charms
It was all so long ago now
Time and space between us
Two lovers who were star-crossed
You will visit my thoughts again
When loneliness takes its grip
And I lament something precious I lost

I felt this one, for sure
Thanks Jami. We all have those memories, don’t we? 💕☺️
Well written. You expressed the emotions so well.
Thank you so much 🙂
The nostalgia for the first love.
You’re welcome Christine. 💖
What a lovely piece. I can feel this down deep.
Thanks so much Laura 🙂💕
It’s odd, isn’t it, that something so absorbing can fade and disappear. You capture the emotion well.
Thanks so much VJ. It is so true. We look back sometimes and wonder why we were so upset. ☺️
Or how we got absorbed in the first place, lol. Hindsight has much more clarity.
Yes 20-20! 🙂
You wrote this one, lovingly, with those deep feelings of loss, and of memories that live on, vividly touching…. I play this lovely song on these days…
Dear Ivor, I know you have experienced deep loss and I appreciate your kind words. I love the song you attached by the master himself. He was a beautiful poet. Thank you my friend. ☺️💕
