The Time That I Knew Love

Poem By ANDREW BLAKEMORE

The happiness that I did share
With you my dearest friend,
And all those days that have now gone
I didn't want to end,
When joy did fill my lonely heart
And stars did shine above,
I wish that I could live again
The time that I knew love.

When everything seemed new to me
A dream that did come real,
Now distant in my memory
Such sadness I do feel,
For pain now fills my empty soul
And dreams are lost above,
I wish that I could live again
The time that I knew love.

Each morning brought me sunshine then
And you did light my days,
So I shall not forget you and
I'll think of you always,
But now the days are cloudy
As I watch the skies above,
And wish that I could live again
The time that I knew love.

There'll never be another now
For no one could compare,
And so I must go on alone
Believing you're still there,
I close my eyes and see you
And I pray to God above,
And wish that I could live again
The time that I knew love.

This was melancholy but inspiring Andrew. I loved the endings repeated on each verse, they were so beautiful to read. A joy to kinf this one. Delicious piece. Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
Dear Andrew I think that you would really appreciate my favourite film of all time..'It's A Wonderful Life ' with James Stewert, dirrected by Frank Capra He knew what it was like to get that second chance Love duncan X
Hi Andrew! Excellent! But the sunshine has so many rays and shall once again brighten, these dark, dark days! *10*! ! ! Thad
this poem actually highlights the fact of how you need to live for the moment, and catch anything that comes your way I like it :)
