I Recall

I Recall


You will never figure out the end of a relationship if you truly loved that person.

I recall, standing in front of the mirror,
how everything used to be then
But now it's just a memory
as the shine of the stars grow dim and fade

I can still recall your haunting eyes
I can still hear your whispering words
When happier thoughts used to flock in my mind
When there wasn't a meaning to why I smile

Should I sream out aloud and start crying?
Should I ask you to stop and say that I'm dying?
Empty thoughts and feelings have blocked the space
I silently feel that I'm no longer living

What can I see through this mirror?
Exactly not what I wanted to be
A half bloomed flower, victimized to winter,
struggling in the cold, recalling the spring

I can still recall that beautiful voice,
the answering echo to my love for him
I can still recall that warmth in your touch,
for, once it gave me breath to live

This mirror always takes me back to the past
and it force me to believe what I see
But still I can't accept that bitter truth,
How did it be just a moment with you?

All seasons and the ups and downs so true for life. As when presentbecomes past the moment turns into memory

Sometimes we are only in someones life for a moment memories of past love will haunt us and paralyze us if we allow it to.We have to learn to let go so we can move on

Now that I'm older, age 65, I see the younger man in me distancing himself from me. This all happens when I look at two lovely young ladies. Stay young fall in love, hurry up!

Heartbreak... the poem depicts heartbreak, recalls memories through a thing in the past. The title also suits very well with the entire poem. Thanks for sharing. :)

Thank you so much

The poem is powerful and create thoughts and places. With time and separation. Things done in the want of love and need. Make us re-harsh places and memories. The ending left me with questions. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
