Fondly and Truly

Fondly and Truly


Just because I slowed right down

Does not mean I stopped loving you


I thought I saw you falter

And thought it best to let you go


And truly


As lightly as a feather might

Leave a trace of ache behind


I set you free

But darling every now and then


Occasionally I pray do think of me

Like you would of waterfalls and sunshine


Like you would of lovers past

Fine wines and holidays…


Yes my love

Do think of me fondly


And truly always

          Beautifully phrased the unspoken desire with us all to be remembered affectionately by past 'nearly right' lovers.
          I know i look back with positive thoughts, as can be seen in my poetry.
          Memories my life would be all the sadder without.

          • Neville

            you and me and almost everyone my friend... thank you for considering these....
