For You

For You

A Poem by Thomas Philmore Jackson

One person telling the love of their life, just how they feel and coming to realize that at some point, this person faced fact that loving wasn't enough!


I love you, and will for the rest of my life... but for you it was not enough.

It's difficult to forget the times we share. I woke every morning knowing you would be there, but now when I wake I cannot see you. The sad part is I no longer cast a tear. At some point I will find someone to love more then you, but for right now I still love you.

At night I lie awake thinking of you. Remembering the time I was able to have you. Memories we once shared, your sweet voice, the warmth of your body, your tender embrace. All are imprinted memories, dreams I had of us, now and forever lost. May they never come to be?

I sit here staring out on the distant mountains. Thinking of all the infinite possibilities that just couldn't be seen, thus I will end here for now. And one day when my children ask me if there was ever someone I truly loved. I will look into their eyes and speak...

In the time I have visited this earth, I have never loved anyone more then I love you. I once did love this one woman with all my heart, all my soul, but for her that was still not enough.
