Your Memories In A Notebook - Poem by Liam Hughes

To you, she is perfection with nothing to lose or gain
With her, things are elaborate when they started out plain
Her scent and her beauty drifts its way into your dreams
Eventually, you wake and your world weakens at the seams
You see her sleeping beside you and the falling feeling ends
You watch her breathing gently and seams begin to mend

How do I know you, you whisper inside your mind
You've lost all your fears as your dreams begin to unwind
Her kiss to you is worth the whole wide universe
Your thankful that you are the one who woke up first
So you get the chance to admire her when no-one is around
You realise this is the very day that your love was found

When she finally wakes you get the days first glance
Into the eyes that never fail to put you in a trance
You make love to each other so tender and so sweet
Her skin feels like silk when your bodies finally meet
You could never grow tired of seeing her in pleasure
The love you have is impossible for anyone to measure

Without the blessing of others and her car at the door
You realise it's over which brings your knees to the floor
The letters that you write are unable to get replies
So you write a farewell letter and a piece of you dies
But one day you see her with the man that she's to wed
Your heart begins to ache you wish that you were dead

The house you promised her it is before your face
So the memories you have can never be erased
One day she's on your doorstep looking like a dream
Things are not as they appear they are not as they seem
After a boat ride through what feels like the heavens above
All of a sudden a feeling returns and you realise it's love

Spend your life besides her even when she forgets your name
You tell the story of your love and she returns again
You lie in each other's arms and again you watch her breath
She recalls your love once more as your souls begin to leave
This is all you wanted as you tried to hold on to your life
Lie together without fears one last time as man and wife

No-one's ever looked deeper into the eyes of another
In the way that you laid there and admired eachother
I don't know where you'll find your final resting place
But as long as your together there's no need to race
When you finaly find it your souls will come to peace
Any suffering you've felt will almost instantly cease

    i absolutely adore 'The Notebook' and your poem perfectly portrays the strong love Noah and Ally felt for each other. i really like how you have told their story throughout the film from falling in love, loosing each other and finally finding each other once again that led to loving internally. your writing has a beautiful flow and rhyme which makes it more of a delight to read. i had a smile every time you made a perfect remark of a scene such as the boat ride which you also followed with a wonderful description. keep writing.
