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.

This was awesome! It speaks volumes to how I feel about my love. My health is not guaranteed anymore, and every day I think like that when I see him...he's my all! Thank you for sharing something that touches my heart.

How beautiful. You touched so many lives with just a few lines, and I have been looking for something that can just break out the chains that the world has us in and remember how love is and can be so strong that you have to take the time to tell it as it is and just LOVE. I lost my mother, brother, and son all within a year's time, and I have never recovered from it. I'm left just looking around and taking life in with a grain of salt! Thank you!

After reading this I cried. I am not an emotional person, and I don't always believe in love, but this poem reminds of how I did not know what to say when my mom got sick. When she was dying I really didn't know how to express myself. I wish I had something like this. This has touched me so much.

This poem is very emotional. It touched me very much. Thank you for sharing this poem. All you wrote was literally what I would say to my best friend. I would share this poem to her if she was alive, but it's too late. Thank you.

I have stage 4 breast cancer. My husband and I will be married 20 years next April. I cannot share this poem with him yet. In our situation it would be too difficult for now. I am still doing "ok." We both know my life is going to be significantly shorter than we want or planned. This poem expresses EXACTLY what I want to say. Wow, it gives me peace. I am going to print this, seal it in an envelope, and give it to him when the time is right. I'm not a huge "poetry" fan, but this poem is simplistic yet expresses such complicated thoughts. If you are choosing a mate and you have found the right one--this poem should ring true. It's easy to have a good relationship when times are fun & easy. I found out that I have the best relationship. My husband has been there with me every step of the journey we are in now. Thank you.

I was very touched by this poem. May God give you a long life so that you may share your sweetness with us. The sweetness of a chocolate remains on a tongue for just a minute, but the sweetness of a person remains in the heart forever. You are one of them.

I feel your pain, sadness, and happiness that you and your husband have had in those years that you guys have been married. My girlfriend and I recently made it 4 years together, and when I read this poem it hit me. It's just what I've been looking for. Thanks, and keep being strong.

What is impossible with man is possible with God. I pray that God manifests Himself to you as the Lord of health and removes that cancer in your system. In Jesus' name.

I've never come to this site, but for some reason I did tonight before writing a poem for my lady. I just want to encourage you to be strong and NOT to ACCEPT the doctors' prognosis as final! Miracles happen daily, and you can be one as well if you go to the end and feel how you'd feel if the Dr. told you he can no longer see the cancer. Feel that feeling prior to drifting off to sleep. I'm praying for you as well! Peace

This poem captures everything me and my fiancé say to each other every day. This poem just says it better, though. It's a great poem, and I am going to send it to her.

As i started reading the poem I imagined my love sitting next to me.
"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"
I love these lines.

"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."

It makes me remember that life is an opportunity and we should live every day like our last, because no one knows his last.

This poem made me feel what my husband would say to me now. He passed away June of last year.

I love the poem to my breath. It reminds me of the love of my life who just walked away from me on December 31st. I wronged her, and the guilt kills me every day of my living.

Keep smiling, my friend; all is not lost.
We learn life lessons, some at a harsh cost,
But keep your chin up smile and sing,
For who knows what tomorrow may bring?

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.

This poem touches my very being.
I just love it . I've just sent it to a dear friend of mine, and truly hope it makes her day, because it certainly has made mine. I just love the way of words, thanks for writing such a beautiful poem.

I love hearing how my poetry touches the heart and soul of others thank you for taking the time to read it and I truly hope she enjoyed it!

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!
