Book Of Love

Book Of Love long poem

Photo by 5aYaL


Well and here I go again
opening up our book of love
to when I was yours and you
were mine and I still shed a tear
reliving all those sweet summer
nights knowing they’ll never
come again…how did our love
die when our love was something
we never could hide. I was so sure
it would stand the test of time but
now you’re just a precious memory
locked away forever in my heart
just like a rose pressed between
the pages of us and our great big
Book of Love…well I get a bitter
sweet feeling remembering all our
ups and downs we had as I go
traveling down memory lane again
it makes me smile sometimes, sometimes
it, makes me sad but then I try to put
you out of my mind and back upon
the book shelf but it isn’t long ’til I
take it down again and again it’s
almost as if you’re really here I swear
you’ll always hold a special place in
my heart just like the rose pressed
between the pages of us in our book
our great big Book of Love!
