A Poem For Anna


Anna Marie O Sullivan I could see tomorrow in your eyes
I could see a future from our very first line
I could see our cocoon release our butterfly in time

I could see you slowly changing me
positivity awakening in my soul as we wrote each new line
i could see our cocoon release our butterfly in time

I could see inside me a spark slowly become a flame
it felt so real to me for the very first time
I could see our cocoon release our butterfly in time

i could see two people learning to understand each others world
problems simply obstacles to be overcome with each new line
I could see our cocoon release our butterfly in time

But I simply could not make you see what I could see
to my love you were blind that was your crime
but I could see our cocoon release our butterfly in time

thank you for the time we spent together you have my heart
together or apart its now yours to hold in time
our butterfly never spread its wings, a lovers crime

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i loved her and i think for the first time in my life i had really fallen in love the way it was meant to be, not lust, not haste but slowly day by day as i looked into her eyes and seen her beautiful soul just waiting to release its pain and become one with me. we never got that chance xxx
