It is will be a distant memory – what we shared, what we loved, you and I

All will be gone as the days roll by,
all will be but faint memories.

I am happier now, I can’t complain
Life has been fair and this is true
Now and then memories of you flood my mind
It does hurt I must confess.

Here I am all alone in the park, ‘our park’
Sitting on the bench. ‘our bench’
The autumn breeze slapping gently on my skin,
blowing the dry brown leaves that were once so green, here and there

 A reminder of how we used to be, you and me.

Here I am sitting on ‘our bench’, 
our favourite spot in the park
watching the ducks scramble to be fed by passers-by
We fed them too- You and I, 
We had fun doing so
I see the swans,
your favourite swans
floating graceful on the pond, ‘our pond’
You did name one after me.

When the sun shines,
it reminds me of our walk through this park, ‘Our park’
Hand in hand, side by side –You and I
We Sway to the left, we sway to the right- you and I in our little world.

You were ever so sweet
Your sweet smiles make me forget all my worries
Yes! You had such effect on me
I never had thought a day like this would come
when I, would all by myself sit on this bench. ‘Our bench’.


Looking back I smile to myself
yes! Sweet memories
I do wonder at-times what life would have been if we were….
Maybe it is for the best
we had to part ways
you and me.

One thought on “Soon”

  1. It really took me back to some of my sweetest memories which once I had with my love, each and every lines of yours was so touching and it was like, a flashback running through my eyes, I really liked the way you have said ‘Our’ for expressing your feelings and it really how much one can be in love with someone, but yes there is something called destiny and it always has a different plan for us, but, the memories with that special person cannot be erased easily, and we are bound to cherish that forever, no matter whether the person is with us or not. I am feeling glad to read your poem and really wish to read more of your poems.
