It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.


I think of you
When I’m alone
When I’m surrounded
When I’m happy
When I’m sad
When I’m without you.

I hold on to that
Last hug
Last smile
Last laugh
Last sight
Last moment with you.

I count down the
Seconds
Minutes
Hours
Days
Weeks until we’re together.

Because without you
I’m incomplete.

This is not about a crush, a date, or a marriage. This is about love between the very best of friends. This is about love that you never forget.

Thanks RedFeather! I like the idea of it being a soft yellow color :).

(Smiling slightly) I don't know how to start. This poem is beautiful in its way. You have a distinct writing stlye in your poems, I've noticed. It's very relatable, yet at the same time, I find this poem rather sad, but that's probably just me and my own pesky memories. Anyone else, I'm sure would think of your poem in a brighter light - probably a soft yellow or pink-tinted light that's not bright, but not so faint that it doesn't light up the area around it.

I think is my favorite comment from you Raven, it's so heartfelt.  It is a shame, sweet it such a pretty word.  It's the same for the word love, it's so overused that it almost ceases to mean anything.

"il piu nell' uno," (according to Emerson, an Italian expression for beauty)

~Kahlil Gibran

It's such a pity that the word "sweet" has begun to mean 'naive' and 'childlike.' Anyway, this poem made me very happy, and I liked its devotion and its... love, because it's describing one of the things most worth living for. Beautiful, Liz. The Raven now wears a tear on his eye. :)

Awww, this is beautiful :) It's so innocent, perfectly simple in a way appropriate to the subject.
