Ten Years After


Ten Years After


Ten years from now,

I am reasonably sure

I may not remember

your name, or your

number, should you

ever dare give them

to me .. But have no

doubt at all, I am sure

to recall, that fire in

those eyes of yours,

the like of which,

I had not seen before

and may never again,

until the day that I die

    Same could be said about these exchanges of poetry. But perhaps they would have to be read aloud as the eyesight is gradually but surely fading as well.

    • Neville

      what an interesting view you propose.

    • dusk arising

      like tail lights in the snow... with no indication of where or how far they will go

      • Neville

        Precisely ................................ thank you 🙂

      • Fay Slimm.

        Love 's memory is timeless and its fire never alters. A comforting read dear friend.

        • Neville

          I am delighted you should see it my way, thanks Fay x

        • JoyJoy

          Beautifully relatable...

          • Neville

            you just made each corner of my mouth involuntarily reach for the ceiling .. thank you and kindly 🙂

          • Doggerel Dave

            The residue, since the data so obviously redundant....but such residue........

            • Neville

              indubitably sir 🙂

            • orchidee

              Did I meet such a lass?! lol.

              • Neville

                if you can't remember her, then I very much doubt it

              • Dr. Soma

                Beautiful, Poet.

                • Neville

                  How very kind, thank you Soma .. Much appreciated .. Neville

                • Bella Shepard

                  An encounter, seared upon the mind, not easily forgotten. Though time may dim the details, the impact remains and serves to comfort. So well versed dear friend.

                  • Neville

                    Thank you Bella ....... another very much appreciated visit from a very dear literary friend .. Neville

                  • Accidental Poet

                    Sounds like love at first sight to me N.

                    At reading your title, I'd thought this was going to be about the rock band Ten Years After. But I was still not disappointed.

                    • Neville

                      thanks my friend .. and what a great band they were/are .. best known for their early stuff, but still going .. their last album was released not long ago, I got it last year as a present from my daughter 🙂

                    • Goldfinch60

                      That love will never be forgotten.


                      • Neville

                        thank you GF60 🙂

                      • Joan Peters

                        We may not remember numbers, but we remember words. Yours are particularly touching and help to embed the muse in time for the rest of eternity. Thank you.

                        • Neville

                          and you ma'am are far too generous .. thank you & truly .. Neville

                        • Aradhya

                          A moment together is far more valuable than an eternity apart and such a memory accompanies one for life and perhaps beyond. Because it's a connection between souls and forever embedded in the heart. Time passes yet it's a moment frozen in time. A beautiful sentiment told in lovely verse Neville. Loved this!❤

                          • Neville

                            You clearly have a keen eye and have a wise head on those young shoulders my friend .. thank you so very much Neville 🙂

                          • L. B. Mek

                            (nothing, is scorched into memory like the wrath
                            of the one, you once trusted with all your heart...)

                            • Neville

                              I am quite partial to the term brilliant .. even if I do say so my self ..... bless you brother Mek 🙂
