A Reason Of Love - Poem by Elena Sandu

He loves me.
A lot. A little.
Not at all.
He loves me not.
The little girl
was terrifying
the whole garden!
Only the daisies
faced the sun smiling
when heard her steps.
You know why?
Because daisies
are sisters with
Me do not forget.
Forget me not
was a daisy's only hope.

Long time melted away
the little girl
now, is quite old
she can't remember
her own name
but she plays
everyday
with an imaginary flower
not minding
the asylum's walls.
She finds herself back
to the mother's garden
singing all day long:
He loves me
he loves me not
he loves me
a lot a little
not at all
he loves me,
he...


Poet's Notes about The Poem

We may forget who we are, we may lose the sense of space and time, yet the memory of love will always be revived in one form or another. If not for the love she had once, the woman wouldn't have a reason to sing, smile and play.

    Hi sister dearest, its been a while since I read your poems, some things never change, like your mighty pen, never go wrong. Touching poem, we are getting older and the memories of our youth days sometimes floods our eyes with tears.
    Super write my friend.

    A gentle and sensitive write of our fragile fleeting lives and those remaining days of the elderly and a timely reminder that all lives are relevant. (Report) Reply
