If Only


I think of all the things I've said,
Then thought of different things, instead.
I think of all that I have done,
When moons were cheese, and life was fun.

But now I sit, and realize,
I lost the one and only prize.
The one who gave me butterflies,
Whose depth was shown, within her eyes.

So, now I sit, in loneliness,
Cold, without her warm caress.
Wondering, what might have been,
If only I might just have seen.......

    Another heart breaking lament of past mistakes and love lost. Beautiful with a light and playful beginning but a sad conclusion. Feelings that universally resonate with other humans that have risked themselves to give their heart to another. (Report) Reply

    If only are words and a sentiment so many of us can identify with. Very well written as always Owain. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
