What Once Was Real


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2008 with permission of the Author.

Once when I looked at you
time stood still.
I could hear my heart sigh,
this love is real.
If only we had known what once was so real,
would today be gone.
Moments of joy and happiness slowly
began to fade, memories of only anger
and pain made my heart grow afraid.
How could love so strong leave two
hearts that simply don't belong.
So sure this love was forever, now
only wishing this nightmare soon to be
Only a short time has passed since
our hearts met last,
leaving behind only a painful past.
With nothing left to say, all I can
do is pray that one day I'll get the
chance to say, the love we once shared
was REAL...
