Remember When

Remember When

A Poem by wordman


Do you remember me baby!

do I ever cross your mind

does your mind ever wander back

to that place in time


They say a hot romance

burns out fast

ahh but what a love while it lasts

a couple years pass not too long

but a lifetime of memories to look back on


I dream of you from time to time

and the sweet memories of you

that echo in my mind


I know I could have made it real

true love for you is what I could feel

I just couldn't connect the dots


Too many wrongs

too many rights

too many feelings for me to fight

you bought linen with my last name

and when we made love

it drove me insane


So please forgive me

if you will

but I just couldn't make marriage

part of the deal


But you will always have a place

pressed in the memories of my mind

as I dream of you

from time to time...

Remember When
This was really a poem which portrays the reality of memories. The heart does not seem to recognize time. It just tells the mind of what love was like and the joy of knowing the person loved. Quite a poem. I liked the way it went through a cycle of time as if being replayed like a record backwards.
