"Did You Never Know?"


Did you never know, long ago, how much you loved me --
That your love would never lessen and never go?
You were young then, proud and fresh-hearted,
You were too young to know.

Fate is a wind, and red leaves fly before it
Far apart, far away in the gusty time of year --
Seldom we meet now, but when I hear you speaking,
I know your secret, my dear, my dear.

    So true is my life to have found my first love after 30 years and he too feels the same way. We both know our secret and will continue in our lives apart, for he has admitted he was too young. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes fate just isn't meant to be, but sometimes you can find a degree of comfort in just knowing. (Report) Reply

    Now here is a great poem...i have often said there is much to value in simplicity and brevity and this poetess embraces both...there is a delicate flow to this wonderful love poem and yet it is powerful in it's delivery. This is good strong poetry. (Report) Reply

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
