Iíve lost a very important and dear part of me
something tangible but that no one can now see
especially now, and I could be so deep in despair
knowing that what once was is no longer there.

From the teenage times of so very long ago
I hand-wrote words and words of winsome prose
I saved them close to me over all of this time
but never more can I say they are mine.

Childish writing with wisdom so deep for the young
words tripped either lightly or heavily off of my glib tongue.
Remembering when my Mom read my poem so deep
for she hugged me tightly as if my soul to keep.

Now those words are forever gone
lost are the pages that I kept for so long.
And my aged mind will never bring the words new, now
so with heavy heart, and anxious hand, I will begin again, I vow.

But oh, I wish I could once again run through
the words of a teenager, a mother brand new;
to see the words of love gone wrong
to hear again the upbeat tempo in the silent song.

To my hard-drive I will save this little rhyme now
and remember conspicuously when it is time now
to save not only once but twice and more
and just for posterityís sake, Iíll shove the floppy in the door!

This is so true! Hanging on to the words, the feelings, the emotions felt in our youth is so very important..and, yet, they do have a way of getting lost.....

This poem put the fear of God into me! I'm going to save my poetry on disks, hard copies and burn them onto a CD!

I understand what you're saying. It's sad to think of them gone! But they are memories that made you who you are today and that's a good thing!

heavily i sigh, knowing that feeling well...as a girl, i wrote, then it all went to hell...that long-lost prose and poetry of mine...slowly i nod, for we can't capture time

------------------
i never call a poem "nice" or such,
for that would not be saying much

Kari dearest sister of heart, this is so true
those feelings, words and days are gone, but also not. They are eternally present, to be remembered, to be recalled by an aroma, a word, o touch. Love this Kari, absolutely love it.

Take care
love as always
Puck

  

Take back the hope you gave,- I claim
Only a memory of the same
