Even without you

No greater love, could the world ever know
Than that which is in my heart.
Neither Romeo nor Juliet could ever
Play the part.

In "What Dreams May Come" he searched…
Through heaven and hell for love so true.
But, no matter the cost, the burden or struggle
So much more I would go through.

If you took movies, books and songs
Not one has been written that really belongs;
For no one could vision this love that I feel
Even fiction can't see a love that's so real.

Yes, I know this story is not going well
And you do not feel what you felt when you fell;
But take as a fact these words that I say
My love for you grows with the dawn of each day.

There is nothing that can happen be it hurt or pain
Or even mother nature, with her clouds and her rain…
That can alter these feelings I now see as true
I'm still a better person because I love you.

So whether or not you still care as you did
Or even if our memories you continue to rid,
I will not waste what you brought me to see
What you brought into being by loving me.

No, not even if someone else you have found
Not even if you think of me now as a clown,
Will ever suppress what your love gave birth to
I will continue to love deeply and forever…
Only You.

I wish we could all feel that we were better people because someone loved us. This is a very touching piece. Thank you for sharing it.

All my love,

that is all that matters.

"I will not waste what you brought me to see
What you brought into being by loving me."

Your poem communicates an important message, to my way of thinking. Throughout and in spite of each love, we grow. Thank you for sharing the expression of this growth here.

beautiful, sad, and so real.  We never
know what we are going to get when
we fall, but it is worth the risk
don't ya think?

Thank you all! I wish it had impressed the same effect on the person it was wriiten for. But it seems everything I do now is taken as "self-absorbed" or "dishonest".
Your kind thoughts and wishes make it "bearable"!
