Dear Belinda

Dear Belinda

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

Old poem written in August of 1990.

"
                         Dear Belinda
I learned life wasn't fair,
you can't get what you want and
love isn't enough sometimes.

I remember a beauty,
prettiest girl I ever known.
When I looked into her eyes,
I dreams of crazy things,
had great dreams where love was kind to me.

I remember whispering to her.
"Belinda, my Belinda.
Please smile for me,
please allow me to show you the midnight moon and
let's dance for the millions star in the clear sky.
Please allow me in and allow me to teach you joy and happiness."

I lived in a strict, un-moving world and my life was organized.
She allowed me in and opened the door for me,
made me believe I was important and she was important to me.

I learn I was seeking love and she was seeking salvation.
I learn broken heart ladies who don't want to be fixed.
Can't.

The funny part, the running man who ran from everything, learned.
Love was never fair,
The sweetest kiss will break your heart and when a woman,
is cold and done.
Love can't be.

In sweet dreams, she was brave and I was willing.
I wrote in secret journals love letters never send.

"Dear Belinda

You are my sweetest days,
my kindest hours.
I love you more than my own life.
You were a dandelion wish,
a wishing well prayer.
You were a Winter storm and I was the quiet forest.
I wanted forever and you wanted your sorrow.
I know dear Belinda,
sometimes love isn't enough."

When two people are seeking different things in a relationship then love cannot bridge the gap. This is one of the saddest kind of scenarios. There is so much to love in that person and you never want to let them go yet it is impossible to go on. I see your love for Belinda and your sorrow at having lost her. I could feel a piece of you go missing when she left. But as you said when a woman is cold, its done. Perhaps, we can take consolation in the beauty of what was and hopefully that beauty, like the seeds of that dandelion will take root forever in a soul.

This is deeply sad.... some lines cut me deep.
A person who doesn't want to be saved can't be.
A great write Coyote, as always.
