I Can't Forget You

Poem by Ronald Chapman

Never sleeping,

Always praying to the stars in the sky,
Hello princess, how are you, my love?
How are you in Heaven?

Reaching for you in my dreams,
Never able to hold you,
Always waking to tears alone,

How can I find a way to move on?
My expectations are too high.
I can never find another you, my beautiful love.

I miss you.

All I want to hear,
is the soothing sound of your heart beating,
next to me under warm blankets in a loving bed,

And to listen to your voice,
saying, I've fallen in love with you,
please, stay with me forever, my love.

    A lady love living in heaven can't be seen nearby by means except in dreams only to wake up with weepings! A great love of a lady who has passed away is nicely written by the poet here!(Report)Reply

    where true love is established it overcome time not only that if one is gone by nature or betrayal for ever another one it remains for ever, I think your poem echoes it...not only that this type memory is so dazzling that it seems it is just the incident of yesterday and then the power of it is felt..../anyway yours is a poem from deepest corner of heart....a purely subjective lyric......congratulations for poem of the day.(Report)Reply

    Having lost true love, awaking in an empty bed and the hurtings so true, must be very awdul to dear Poet Ronald. I do hope poems soften the pains, especially like this one. I have great respect for the poet for transposing his emotions in this ardent poem about a very precious loved one, but this beloved died too soonest.(Report)Reply

    A heart-wrenching poem, most beautifully worded. The poet is a true romanticus, but misses really his beloved partner as he is used to sleep under the same blanket. Unchangeable it seemed, deepest sadness and mournings we can read in this lloveliest poem ever read by me ever written by a man, very romantic. A TEN and much much more for the Voting. CONGRATULATIONS for The Poem of The Day, Ronald.(Report)Reply

    Thank you..Sylvia Frances Chan for the beautiful and kind words and the TEN.
