I Don't Believe I Can Write A Love Poem Again


It is all so far away from me,
That passion that longing that supreme pleasure-
I don’t think I can even really remember it again,
What it was to long so and wait so and want so and embrace so-
I know I cannot remember-

How she was everything for me
All I ever wanted in life
How I would have given my life for her
How I just in being with her felt totally alive and happy
And how in our caresses there was all the joy I had ever dreamed-

It has been so long ago-
And I cannot ever hope to touch what we in our years of joy
Shared so eagerly-

Now that is all gone
And my remembrance too cannot touch it.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
