Distant Shore

O could it be that we have known
Such tender love before -
That we have loved each other so
Upon some distant shore.

Within the far and long lost past
Then maybe you were mine -
I held you in my gentle grasp,
Set in another time.

And could it be the Moon above
Has watched our warm embrace,
And seen us kiss so sweetly in
Some other far off place.

Beyond the boundaries of time,
Perchance our love did grow -
For now I love you, as I deem
I loved you long ago.

And thus when darkness steals our souls
I know our love won’t die,
For it will blossom in the dawn
That lights another sky.

Don’t weep my love, my sweetest love,
Forever we shall be
Two hearts united through all time,
Into eternity.

    a beautiful write on immortal love. a perfect poem with emotion n heart write. we are writing so many poems out of all very few are such which can be considered as complete poem. so many times we pour so many unidentified words which deface the poem. in your poem i m obzerving selection of word is marginal expressed as if you took the help of your heart bcoz heart is never mischievous.

    Two hearts united through all time,
    Into eternity.

    You kill the cynic in my bosom with an arrow of enchantment, love rises in the corpse of bitterness. Thank you (Report) Reply
