Do You Remember When...?

They sat hidden in the shadows
and talked amongst themselves.
I doubt they would've noticed
if their servers had been elves.

He was entangled in her beauty
and the things that she would say.
There were moments interrupted
but he never looked away.

The waiter took their orders
and he served them both their meals.
I couldn't help but envy them...
''I remember how that feels...''

To feel the world is spinning
just for the both of you.
Everything's exciting
and there's nothing you won't do.

If only we could bottle
all the passion of those years
to use when it is needed most
to help wash off the tears.

Sometimes it seems impossible
to feel as we did then.
Perhaps we can go back there.
Do you ''Remember when...''?

    this poem wasn't really helpful. It didn't follow the same structure as the one in class.

    Wow, I really liked this poem! It reminded me of a romance novel...but in a very good way. Being only 14 I haven't expierenced true love yet, but this poem gave me a great idea on how wonderful it can be. Great poem.

    The first flower of passion always has the loveliest fragrance.

    It's been bottled... but the label's changed. You have to remember it's now labelled 'Essence of...'... and poets remind us...it's now on a different shelf, too, but not out of reach...

    Mary, I love your poems.

    Being newly 'in' love is so exciting...it has been for me anyhow...who'da thought? I think as we get older that 'must' and 'should' issues should include the responsibility to ourselves and to our lovers to not lose touch with that 'heat' -. This is a lovely poem, Mary. Thanks for reminding us.

    This is another one of your poems written from observing the world. Sensitive and well written. All of us could benefit from 'Remembering When'.
