Brief Encounter - Poem by David Wood

I saw you out the other day
And my heart skipped a beat,
One of those moments I can say
Where I paused and beat a retreat
And walked away downbeat.

I thought of the deep love we had
Moonlight walks on the beach,
The times when we were both so glad;
The good times now so out of reach
Where love was just a peach.

I remember your laugh, your eyes,
The wrinkle in your nose.
When we walked with the good and wise.
Now in the past, how time just goes.
How swift came love’s death throes.

Yes, I miss your soft lips, your kiss,
Your lovely sweet embrace
Yes, all those things I sadly miss,
Gazing upon your gentle face
You were so full of grace.

But you fell for another’s charm
And your heart turned to frost
And love had lost its soothing balm
To such, such, a terrible cost,
And I felt Oh' so lost.

    Love is the key about life and, true love is not a decision. Nice work. (Report) Reply
