What a grand and glorious day today was!! Has anyone seen a Robin yet? I had a post in mind for today, and while I was looking something up, I grabbed a book that I have owned for a long time. Hmmmmmmm
You know how certain sensory stimuli triggers certain memories? Well thats what happened to me today. Stuck in the middle of Roget's Thesaurus was an envelope. Inside the envelope was a picture of my old girlfriend. A picture and a poem... We went together for 4 years. She was the first love of my life. Her father was a Doctor, but a nice enough guy. Her Mom didn't like me much, but kept it to herself. But they had MY whole life planned out for me and I bolted...
In the long run it was probably best...for her! But I can't change time, and my two children are priceless to me so I'll never look back. But we had something special, and I set her free...
I used to be well read. I used to write a bit. But over the years I got real lazy thanks to Cable.
Reading this depressing little poem that I wrote years ago, drifted me back to a very turbulant era in America. And my life then.....Hey......I was young, cut me some slack...
I long for her comfort
Her beautiful face
Her loving arms
Her warm embrace
When passion owned us
We greeted the Dawn
Then Mindless Ecstacy
Was suddenly gone
The recurring refrain
In an endless sea
Where my Heart used to be.
I still miss her..............G
