If I Thought

©

Published: February 2015

If I thought for just one moment that this would be my last breath,
I'd tell you I'll love you forever, even beyond death.
If I thought for just one moment that your face would be the last I'd see,
I'd take a million pictures and save them just for me.
If I thought for just one moment that your voice would be the last I'd hear,
I'd listen attentively and promise not to shed a tear.
If I thought for just one moment that your touch would be the last I'd feel,
I'd embrace you and know that this has all been real.
If I thought for just one moment that my heart would beat its last beat,
I'd thank the Lord for allowing us to meet.

As I read the poem I must say that it's the best that I've heard in days. This poem made me think of my lovely mother, the love of my life. Having the fear that someday she will not be with me. Thank you for sharing such a touching piece of writing. Loved it.

Very beautiful and a touchy one. Very rare to see such friendships in these so called global villages which help you in getting in touch with someone at your finger tips. Nostalgic.

Your opening line:

"If I thought for just one moment that this would be my last breath,
I'd tell you I'll love you forever, even beyond death."

Made me think about the man I wrote about in my own poem "Time and Again" and the way I feel I have found him through space and time. It also made me remember that due to our circumstances, we can not be together, and the way that realization breaks my heart; we still hold dear to each other.

Thank you for writing; I loved it!
