' One Fine Day

We'll be together one fine day
Though life has turned our hair to gray
And we've missed the tender touch of youth
But not the warm embrace of truth;

The course was set before we knew
That you were me, and I was you,
And though our paths took different turns
The passion deep within us burns;

Like fleeting memories yet unknown,
A beacon shines that draws us home
To all that's real when there is doubt,
To remind us what life's all about;

Though passion blossoms when we're young,
The sweetest songs remain unsung
Until we find that perfect sound -
When the missing note is finally found;

Shall we complete this symphony,
This timeless tale of you and me,
Don't let the music fade away -
We'll be together one fine day.

    Very nicely expressed.

    Though passion blossoms when we're young,
    The sweetest songs remain unsung
    Until we find that perfect sound -
    When the missing note is finally found;

    Shall we complete this symphony

    So tender is the love
    With age matures
    more and more like
    old wine, giving that sweet / bitter taste

    You know, Midnight, it only took me 3 1/2 years to conclude it....but you DO have a natural penchant for:
    ''Picture Perfect'' Metre/Rhythm, my dear Midnight.... as so displayed above.
    You have heard of course the tune from The Beatles famed Sgt. Peppers album,
    ''Lovely Rita'', that goes, ''Lovely Rita, meter maid, sing us a song about ya'....''
    Wellllll, say hello, to yet another title? alias/aka, FjR developed, of course...
    Midnight Metre M(ade) Magnificent!

    It reminds me of John Keats' lines 'Heard melodies are sweet/ but unheard melodies are sweeter! ' Nice poem! (Report) Reply
