Remember When

Remember when we first did meet,
our hearts rejoiced and skipped a beat.
Remember our first kiss goodnight,
the hug we shared that summer's night.

Remember when we walked the beach
and all our dreams within our reach.
Remember how we used to be
when I had you and you had me.

Remember when we used to talk,
when we held hands and took long walks.
Remember how we spent our days
in warm sunshine and in the rain.

Remember when our one desire
was take a chance and ignite the fire.
Remember the times that made our hearts melt
and all of the passion and desire that we felt.

Remember when you looked at me
and saw the one you love and need.
Remember when you reached for me
and knew that we were meant to be.

Remember when our love was new. 
Remember the day we both said, "I do."
Remember the journey we started together. 
Remember our love was always forever.

Remember the promise we made together,
to love and to cherish and to care for each other.
Remember the promise in good times and in bad
and to make each one happy rather than sad.

Remember when you held our child
and rocked the baby when I grew tired.
Remember the treasured times
like these when love grew into family.

Remember when the world was bright,
when we would laugh and hold on tight.
Remember when our hearts were broken,
when times were tough and words unspoken.

Remember when we grieved our loss
with parents gone and feeling lost.
Remember when our love endured
the pains and heartaches of the world.

What happened to the life we shared? 
What happened to a love so rare?
What happened to the kiss goodnight,
the warm embrace, the love at night?

Did it all just happen? How do we right the wrong?
I know that in my heart your arms I do belong.

Can we live our lives together just like it all began,
and can we hold and cherish each other and remember our love again?

This poem is exactly where my wife and I are right now. Food for the soul.

I believe this poem had been written for my spouse and me to let us know that what we share is much greater than the trials we had faced and will ever face. It reminds us of the times we had to face odds from both our parents, especially mine. It couldn't have been any worse. But each time the trials come, we reminded ourselves of what had bonded us together. Today, we are still strong and holding onto our love so pure and so true. And against all odds, we'd be getting married in few months' time. Thank you so much for this poem!

Beautiful memories! People go through life not knowing love such as this. Even if relationships don't last forever, memories do. If this is personal, may your love return to you & stay FOREVER!!

Beautiful poem. Love really makes the world go round. It's not just in the movies we see, but true, real love does exist between normal people like you and me!

Yes, yes, this particular poem has touched me deeply. It took me on a journey of someone's life, a beautiful love story, that started rich with all the love, contentment, security, and happiness then sadness and trials and life circumstances start to change. Sometimes these trials change us along the way. Heartaches happen, we get caught up, we get out of touch with our own feelings. Sometimes I think we start growing apart very slowly, not even realizing until it's too late that we lost such a rare, special gift. Maybe it is too late, or maybe it's not! This has truly touched me because it is so real!
