Emily Randleman


Reality


Can you remember how we first started?

That first kiss we shared dancing,

And every night since staying up all hours to talk.

A single spark that was felt with four lips touching.

But love is a fragile thing.

With one single mistake it can end,

And that's what happened to you and me.

I can’t really say how it happened.

What I can say is it may have been destiny,

you coming to me

Maybe not forever

But long enough to make feel love for the first time.

    Great poem Emily! Some people come into our lives for a lifetime and some just long enough for us to learn what we need to from them. (Report) Reply

    Emily, love has profound meaning. it is not so fragile that to vanish with a puff of time. Keep loving and keep writing then ask me after a year. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
