Treasure Island

Julia A Moore

(1847-1920 / United States)

Dear Love, Do You Remember?


Dearest one, do you remember,
As we sat side by side,
How you told me that you loved me,
Asked me to be your bride.
And you told me we'd be happy,
Through all the years to come,
If we ever would prove faithful,
As in the days when we were young.
Oh! how well do I remember,
The kind and loving words,
And now as I sat dreaming,
The thoughts my memory stirs.
But the days have passed before me,
And the scenes of long ago,
But I can never forget the
Days that have passed o'er.

Oh! how clearly I remember
The days when we were young,
How we would tell to each other
Of happy times to come,
And as we would sit together,
That dear loved one and I,
Oh, sat dreaming of the future,
And childhood days gone by.

Dearest love, do you remember
The first time that we met --
Our youthful days have gone, love,
I hope you love me yet,
Now we are growing old, love,
Our heads will soon be gray,
May we ever love each other
Till from earth we pass away.

    Hey Julia,

    What a beautiful poem, I really loved it and it made me remember my college days, Me and my love have been going around for the last 10 years, since our 12th standard and this year we will be tieing a knot.
    Last 10 years seem to have past with a blink of an eye, I have enjoyed every moment of it be it fight, hanging out, love making or just singing songs together. Your poem, really touched my heart, undoubtedly, love is the greatest emotion of life and I am very happy cause today for the first time, I have come across someone who believes so much in love, just like me.
    I thank God, each day of my life for giving me Ashish and I am happy that you have also been blessed by the almighty, to have enjoyed this emotion in abundance.

    All the best to you. (Report) Reply
