The Last Time I Saw You

Accidental Poet


The last time I saw you

A fourteen-year-old was I

I told you I’d always love you

And 50 years later it’s still no lie


Since we were ten years old

You’ve owned my heart

Love at first sight

God’s own work of art


But love’s not always

A two-way street

And still you left me

With a feeling so sweet


Never regretting

The first day I saw you

You’ve always been the best

And I’ll always love you

        The heart can be influenced in so many ways N. And the effects of love can bring out the beautiful sides of human nature. Many thanks to you N for your unique reaction and thoughts of my words here. 😉

          Yes, I was about to cry because I knew I'd not brought my ear plugs. 🤔

        • The elder poet

          Our loves from our past touch our hearts more than we could have ever known. But they stay in our heartsand stay on our minds. These loves make writers out of us. Just another thing to thank them for. A very nice heart felt poem.
