Elusive Love - Poem by Marius Silverstone

We walked on the beach under starry night,
We swam in the river just before sunrise;
We threw dry leaves at each other in the park last fall,
I spread some blueberries on your face.

We talked on the phone for hours
even though we saw each other earlier that day.
We both pretended that our friends' jokes were funny
and I learned to make gingerbread cookies for you.

We took some black and white pictures in town;
we went feeding swans on the lake.
We made fires in the evenings, watching flames
as if the future was written there.

I was so happy then;
felt love to the whole world...
My soul cools down
when I remember
that we have never met.
