"but the years have taken
a toll, that I fear is too great
I never felt myself leave
but there is certainly now
less of me
less of my self respect
and certainly less of
who I used to be, and
much less respect
for the man you
turned out to be
there is less of your kindness
and less of your
want to take care of me
and less of your smile
and now I just feel a sadness
for the one
that used to be two.
I think I knew what this one was about when I saw the title...this poem speaks of my heart like I could have wrote it...how did you know(smile)...
deeply honest and personal, painful and real...
very moving poem...very well expressed...
some times less is more...but never when speaking matters of the heart...
there comes a time when we all get tired of settling for less...I know we all deserve more...
take care, jm
The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...
