I'Ll Never Forget You - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Opaque heart lit with tenderness
She shines like a child’s smile
Those old songs bring a tear
I really hope your life is happy
When the bitterness goes we can see
We had some real love one for another
Didn’t we?

Oh! How I pretended and rationalized
How I tried too make it all contained
Processed and intellectual
Now I know it was love
Pure and simple love and passion
Defining things can minimize

Nothing has ever replaced the fire of your kiss
They say we only get one love of our life
Your eyes so filled with moonlight
So passionate
Our bed was on fire
Now I am old with memories
You are still there
You always loved purple
We had a purple lilac bush, remember?

Remember when we got our first antique lamp?
Candles in the dining room
Serving thanksgiving for my mother
So proud that our home was nice
You never did meet my father
I know you would have loved him

In some ways I hope I go first
I am happy you’re out there in this madhouse
If I ‘d quit drinking maybe we would be together
I regret that but alcohol is now long gone
I hope you always have a place in your heart for me
You did have a temper and could be tuff as nails
I know living with me could be hard sometimes
I think deep beneath all the pain we are friends

You’re married again and I wish you the best
Resolution can take a lifetime
Silent regret can be haunting
I think it’s easier to bring it out in the open
It's strange but I have a feeling we are still in touch

Love is a biography
Ours has ended but hasn't
Maybe past all the smoke and fire we are friends
I’ll never forget you, I already tried that

    A very touching, lovely poem, yet bittersweet because of haunting circumstances. Your honesty lies right on top of this poem, showing everyone your regret at what happened in the past. Now moving forward, leaving so many things behind you, it seems you no longer want to forget any of it. Living now with the vision of regret and hoping only to be friends. A very poignant poem Joseph. Thank you, RoseAnn (Report) Reply
