Moments In Time Poem by ANDREW BLAKEMORE

Moments In Time

Rating: 5.0

Moments in time
Things could have been different,
And if I could change things I'd go back again,
Chances I missed
Wrong places and timings,
And all went awry left alone with my pain.

Moments in time
That could capture a heartbeat,
They all passed me by and so they went unseen,
Blossoms of love
Always fell in the springtime,
Then blew across fields and the hillsides of green.

Moments in time
I will always remember,
And never forget how the good turned to bad,
Lost is the hope
There is someone who needs me,
Who's sharing this heartache and feeling so sad.

Moments in time
Now so far in the distance,
And there's no returning those days have all passed,
Gone is the joy
With my dreams of the summer,
And love that I longed for that just couldn't last.

A beautiful and wistful poem. The comparison of lost love with the seasons is a lovely touch. S :)

A lovely rhythmic poem, I felt like singing to it somehow, although the contents were sad. How we can all look back wishing we had done things in another way, or as you say, another time, or another place. Another wonderful poem from your magic pen. Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

Even though this is written in a melancholy mood the beauty of Spring lifted the mood for here. There is an acceptance in the last stanza of the moments having passed but life goes on regardless. As usual Andrew this is a fine poem comparable to any Master poet from moments in time. 10 Karin Anderson
