Perhaps, now after we have travelled a long way
We look past our newer days and see only broken promises.
Perhaps, there are no more questions to ask, or answers to be expected.
Perhaps, the way we are is not the way we should be. Perhaps, it was just a dream desired by two. Reality was never our best companion.
Perhaps we can no longer see, a sparkle on each other's eyes, the light has died before finding its way.
Perhaps, it was just a shadow of a smile, that was unborn for lack of expression.
Perhaps, I'm the only one, to read between the lines of your unfinished words.
Perhaps, we should just let it rest, at the bottom of that deep lake, where our untouched feelings, are still sleeping.

      • onepauly

        in your poem, you put just a dream desired by two.
        I also have my problems with reality.
        think positive. ha! ha!

      • FredPeyer

        What you should not let rest is your writing! Another great poem. Thank you.

        • malubotelho

          Thank you Fred. Little by little we get there. I'm in a nostalgic way. Everything is fine though. Will write something to cheer up next time.

          Emotive wrote, sweet lady. Something in this squeezed my heart.

          • malubotelho

            It is sad indeed. It is that time when one have to let it go. I did it. Luckily we have kids and we are always together and we are good friends. Thanks for reading.

            Very melancholy, but well put together for the reader, I think.


            • malubotelho

              Thanks Frank, it is an expression of melancholy. I think it is because is raining a lot here and too much rain makes the days kind of gray. Therefor it brings sad thoughts.

              Song of lament. Well done.

              • malubotelho

                Thanks Augustos. Nice to see you back.

                Perhaps these words will live forever.

                • malubotelho

                  Perhaps when these words reach you the rain will have stoped and the mood have changed. Thanks for reading.
