Young At Heart Poetry Vol 2. – When You

When you crossed my path, it never occurred to me you’ll be back again

When you danced with me,  I never noticed your weakness

When you held me close,  I never read your mind

When you laughed with me,  I didn’t see the hurt inside

When you asked for patience, I didn’t mean to be in a hurry

When you reached out for peace, I didn’t intend to fight war

When you cherished my world, I didn’t mean to shatter yours

When you applauded me, I danced from a distance

When you stood by me ,  I saw shadows behind

When you laid beside me, I heard our heart beat as one

When you kissed me, I realized how deep I’ve fallen

But when morning came, memories of yesterday became wishes of today

For you were gone without a trace into my dream of last night
