that you left me

Sometimes, in moments of quiet solitude,the past catches up with you and holds your hand. -- dsnake1, Feb 2008

image from

that you left me

i was afraid
time will erase
your memories

your smiles

and i am
getting old

so today
i will just

some words

i cannot
send you
a card
like before

or take your
hands in mine

and point to
the stars
in the sky

take this as
a poem

for you

and if you
have read it
you will smile

and would
have cried.


This is for Poetry Picnic Week 34.

Sentimental and touching.

"or take your
hands in mine

and point to
the stars
in the sky"

There is such sweetness in that. It does ache just to read it in this poem's context.

Its the true feeling, i can understand it well..when we dont have the person we love wid us, we can write and it will be the biggest return if they had read it..
