I am a romantic at heart. I’ve been a romantic for a long time. Most songwriters, poets and writers are romantic. We pull from deep within our soul.
I was coordinating and writing my third poetry book, Poetry to the Third. I hope to have it finished by Christmas. It will be very heartfelt about family, love and life.
I wrote this poem recently. I hope you all like.
Please enjoy this song as you read.
Thank you Gracie! 🙂 ❤
I think often
Your beauty never left my sight
Of that moment with you
Departing from your flight
Your gaze… so, so bright
Instantly, my breath was stolen
And time stopped
Sleeping half-way through my day
In this long and varied life
My eyes itch from looking at the screen
Rarely, do I play
I wonder if this memory will leave my life
Glancing to the screen
Wishing your eyes and smile are what I’d see
I think of you so often
I tried to forget those days
Erase the sad past, of losing myself
Walking in mornings
Dancing in evenings
Under a moon nicked slight
Not shining as bright
Clouds sitting on air
Wind moving our uncombed hair
A morning by the ocean
Coffee in white cups so pristine
And waking in bed to a smiling gleam
Stepping in the sand
Splashing up waves along the edge
If only I’d have you stay
Why are you so far away?
In mind, and soul, and heart
Why haven’t I considered this life
Of you and me and me and you
And Ikanaide plays in the background
This theme of how I feel now
Losing you and me and me and you
How often this plays in my brain
A tear falls to this paper
Soon it will disappear too
I miss you
So, very, very often
And a more upbeat version of a song with the same title but a different composer, sung by Pomu Rainpuff:
She’s so cute. Ikanaiyo
Two songs with the same name by two different composers with two very different ideas of “don’t leave me.” Either way the message is the same. The ending is always sad when someone you love leaves you whether they want to leave or not. Memories are both good and bad. But they will always be “kept” memories.
I hope you have a beautiful day of seeking and searching and finding what you love.
Hi Gracie! 🙂 Happy Birthday! ❤
