I know you donít believe me
For I told you all those lies.
And that I gave you reason,
To leave I realize....
But darling I still love you-
Regret all those mistakes
Iíd like to start all over,
If it is not too late.

Wonít you take a minute
To look into my eyes?
The love which you will find in there
May come as a surprise...
I did you wrong, I canít explain
The motive or the cause-
But when you said, ďItís overĒ.
I knew what I had lost.

If you leave me, darling-
I just may not survive.
I wonder if a part of it-
Was being forty-five?
Middle aged and crazy-
Itís said go hand and hand...
Can you find forgiveness-
For this crazy man?

If you canít I understand-
And blame you not at all.
My folly, dear, has caused a lot
Of bitter tears to fall.
Do you think itís possible
To give it one more try?
If you doubt my love, sweetheart-
Just look into my eyes.

Your poetry always sounds like a smooth flowing dialogue, and this is no exception.
Excellent!

No matter what our age, sometimes we don't fully appreciate what we have until we've lost it... well done!

Slinger: Once again, another fine offering. I hope she see's the truth within. I bow to you and yours.

What a guy !
Another great rendering.
Your poetry moves me in so many
directions ... you are very,
very versatile.
