(1.5) The Greatest One of All


My past is full of
Lovers lost and lovers found.
They're proof to me that
In this world love abounds.

Some of my loves were great
And other loves were small,
But my love for Peggy
Was the greatest one of all.

True lovers lost for centuries,
Kindred spirits were reunited,
Transcending space and time,
Our love became love requited.

Given but a brief score of years
To find and know our hearts,
Sharing our laughter and our tears
Until we were torn apart...

I know that she's an Angel,
More so than I can ever be...
I doubt that I can change,
But she's come to visit me...

I was inconsolable
And somehow she knew
And wrapped me in her love,
Rare and Wond'rous, too...

Our disabilities were our strengths,
Bringing us together again,
Empowering us to any length
As Lovers and the best of friends.

Old souls in a modern world,
The flame of love was relighted
The Gods were kind to allow
Lost lovers to be reunited.

    This is a powerful poem and so true, if only most people would realize that we can communicate in our own special way with loves that have moved on. They never stop loving us. All the wonderful memories that we shared, stay with us for a lifetime. A strong love never ends, we will carry it with us until the time comes for us to crossover and then we can rejoin our true love once again. Isn't it wonderful to know that we will meet again in paradise. Oh, how I look forward to that miraculous day. God Bless you Karl, I feel your pain--Melvina-- (Report) Reply
