I Got To Keep It All

I Got To Keep It All

A Poem by RED

Another love poem...

I kept the memories 
The smiles, the flowers 
The little stolen moments 
From the deepest of wells to the highest of towers 

I kept it alive 
The fumbling, the blushing 
The excitement so rare 
The hope that it was something more than just a summer fling 

I kept it burning 
The flame, the flare 
The bubbling restlessness 
The feeling so rare 

I kept the memories 
Memories of you being flirty 
Memories of you being shy 
Looking back at it all 
I know you did try 

I got to keep it all 
Your heart safely inside mine 
From this summer to next fall 

I kept the promise ring 
And that first love letter too 
I got to keep it all 
Only cuz i got to keep you

A beautifully written poem about how you keep the love alive. I also like the repetition in this poem, which in a way describe the excitement of what you derive from that love.
Nice write.

WOW! Great Poem!
'I got to keep it all
Only cuz i got to keep you '
Very amazing lines here, but somehow I think if I really love someone, the memories live inside! I don't mean anythin rude, just my own thinking. You have a wonderful poem here, keep it up!
