Loneliness

Loneliness

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

All that's left of our sweet love, is this song that we once knew.

"


Someone starts to sing a song

and it makes me think of you

Just a sad, simple, melody

both you and I once knew

 

As the words drift by my ears

a kind sadness fills my heart

The song has much more meaning

as time has kept us apart

 

I try to see your face again

to think of things unsaid

But all I can remember

is this song inside my head

 

My memory is failing now

oh so sad, but oh so true

All that's left of our sweet love

is this song that we once knew

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
How can any of us say we are not afraid to die?
To see another waste away is such a painful thing.Yet we still see them as we wish to remember them

A memory is a life time storie and the names of the people does not meter, what meters is like you said.. The feeling that brings us a smile or a tear.
I had to stop all that I was doing tonight! and sit here and read with my heart and soul your poetry, you have ask me many times to come and read it so tonight I had some time.
You are one of the people ( poet) I know that writes about songs and feelings and real life facts, I do understand.
When we love.. we love, ! we do not think of nothing else but to give and forget about our self, In this verses you wrote I read them quite a few times, each line over and over again.
The heart has the ability along with the mind, to takes us to the very second where we left that memory and re-lived the memories. Our minds are made in such a perfection that not one detail escapes with time we have files up to date and we never make mistakes unless we want to. How perfect is our brain and heart that even when time goes by so fast but, when that musical note hits our mind. Bummmm! There it is again and our yesterday's are in our today's and they can come and visit our present in a flash. It goes by so fast and leaves us exhausted and full of love and sometimes pain.
I can't even begin to tell you how much I love to come and read your poem, it brought tears to my eyes ( Again and Again) You my friend have that gift to touch a very tender part of my soul and heart.
I can't stop looking at the image and thinking about my Mom and Dad. For some reason that was the string you touched... and you will continue to bring me to my knees every time Oh yes !!! I will come back and read this. Divine, simply divine.
If I may say.. the best poem I have read today .. Sunday and I will go and open my library to post this poem on my top shelf... I am going to save it in a very tender special place for this amazing poem you have wrote and I thank you.
Not everyone can bleed and not hurt when a poet as you displayed his words in a such a deep feeling for us to feel.
Again.. one more time. You have got me glued ! No surprise to me I knew you will do it again. Off I go to read another one of your pages..I love to do that!

Songs always seem to trigger a memory for me. This poem is simply beautiful and the sense of loss you express as it relates to the song in your head make it all the more touching. A wonderful tribute to one who you obviously loved dearly. I hope your good memories help to ease the pain.

Your auyhors note is spot on Tate, we see how they were and not who they are, just like thinking of ourselves as ageless in our minds, until we pass a mirror.
A song, a smell, a favourite thing, the list is endless of what can bring a flicker of them back to us, we can only hope that the moments they remember keep visiting, easing the fear, however briefly.
Beautifully crafted, as always.

yeah,it would be sad
A beautiful nostalgic experience. Sadness is also part of the human condition, and as in this poem of yours, it is often an artistic muse.

Yep this poem speaks to a love that I remember all too well. I still can't look at her pic nor have the strength to throw it away. The song that rings on my head is " In My Mind by Heather Hedley and "Haunted" by Beyonce. Another masterpiece you have penned.

Thank you fran
The song is over, but the melody lingers on. How lucky can one girl be...I loved him and he loved me..lines from songs that someone else wrote.........for me, I think. Never did I think that the day would come that such sorrow would become the Joy that fuels my soul. Oh, what happy tears I continue to shed. As I grow older I will likely forget some of the magic moments we shared in our nearly 50 years, since I was a teen. But I shall never forget the super-natural experience we shared when he awoke from his comatosed state and smiled at me..one moment before he died. Nice read, Tate! Barbz
