Do You Ever Think Fondly Of Me?

Do you wake in the middle of the night
Crying, uncontrollably, desperately?
Do you cry like I cry within the night?
Oh, do you ever think fondly of me?

This lovely poem goes into the list of my favourite poems now. Such a passion and longing for the beloved never ever seen before. But, the reassurance you seek makes it a broken affair. Thanks.

thanks for sharing this very touching poem! Yes, I agree sometimes certain memories stay for ever; no matter how much we try, they refuse to go away...I guess one just has to learn to give up somehow and move on with the hope that the other person is happy and at peace...I also wrote a similar poem this month, The end or a beginning? .

Well, I thank you so, so very much for this simple, a little bit sentimental but so true poem. I received it today in PoemHunter.com Newsletter. It IS EXACTLY about something what I think and re-think for last few days. The same situation revealed by the encounter with the person lost 18 years ago. Had we made it past this last obstacle? - it was just like that, and it withered and died. Strangely, you are 30 and I am much older - how could you know things like that? But you know it so well! I tried so hard to express all my pain and desolation, I wrote and wrote and wrote some long letter never to be send... But I had no formula. Your poem is what I tried to find. I will send it to her and nothing more. Sometimes a poem is much truer than tears and explantations and long, long phrases. And it is what poetry is for. Thank you and God bless. (I'm sorry for mistakes.)
I can relate to this so strongly it's heart-wrenching. Apart from clearly emotively-penned content, it's so flowing it is almost a song. t x
