Lonely Poem

Chasing After Unrequited Love

I wrote this poem after losing one special person in my life. That unrequited love left a bittersweet feeling in my heart. There are days when I feel lost, like I'm floating alone in a boat at open sea, wondering if I will ever find true love.

Very nice, Alokin. I think virtually everyone can identify with this as most of us have had a similar disappointment in our past, some even in the present I am sure. I was given good advice...

Take My Hand

I thought that I was chasing dreams
While I was walking down those fast streams.
Chasing after love that will never be,
Now I am left stranded at deep open sea.

Will I ever find a way back to the shore?
All that I ask for is nothing more,
Just someone who can gently take my hand
And walk with me on the soft beach sand.

Relationships are like leaves on a tree. You hear your inner angel telling you, "I'm leaving you today, till spring we meet again," and deep sorrow and loneliness beget you. Had a few long relationships, a few short ones, been married twice. The second was my best friend for 16 years, then the weather changed. Relationships are like leaves on a tree, sometimes your leaf gets weathered, sometimes your leaf gets pulled by other people, sometimes your leaf gets wasted away in a bad environment. Life teaches us one thing. If we are all one love in this universe then this physical existence is only temporary given our physical frame. Physical relationships are all about time and change. There's got to be something more than a physical frame. There's got to be the love of soul, love of spirit. Otherwise, people would not get married and have children.

Very nice, Alokin. I think virtually everyone can identify with this as most of us have had a similar disappointment in our past, some even in the present I am sure. I was given good advice by my grandfather when a boy. He said, "Gary, someday you will want to settle down and find a wife. When you do, always look at how she treats her parents. If she respects them, she will always respect you. Also, marry your best friend as friendship outlasts everything else." I followed his wise advice and in spite of hardships along the way, I could not have a happier marriage or a more loving spouse. I did marry my best friend. Blessings, Gary
