"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.

    A beautiful short and sweet write. You were on my mind then
    but you was to young to know. Enjoyed.

    Love was young and blind
    And had us in a golden bind
    But time broke the vows we made
    In that secret beautiful glade....

    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.

    This piece speaks of lasting love and tragedy. A great poem... I love her 'style.'

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

  • Gladys Mcdowell (3/18/2005 8:45:00 PM)

    that is the kind of poems i love to hear. it is very emotional to me. i never heard a poem that was emotional. this poem is the best. keep up the great work.

  • Faith Elizabeth Brigham (11/7/2004 7:43:00 PM)

    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.
