Baby, Come Back...

 

 

The day we first dated

was the day

I fell in love with you.

I was head over heels

for you.

 

I loved the way you moved,

your hair, and the complexion

of your skin.

 

There was something about you

in everything you do.

 

Please come back.

I was wrong

and you were right.

 

I remember the days we touched

and made love to mellow rock

and country music.

 

Oh, how the beat seemed to go on

but that was all just a fantasy.

 

The rain fell many days

after are relationship ended.

 

After all that was said and done,

I realized it was all for the best.

 

The day we married,

we danced up a storm.

 

On our honey moon

we made love on the beach.

Your naked body in the ocean

made me so aroused.

 

We did some site seeing

in Naples and Fort Myers Florida.

 

We had dreams of buying a condo

on the beach.

 

We both worked hard

but an accident

would turn our dreams

into dust.

 

Oh, how I wished I could turn back

the hands of time

and relive a moment in my life

over again.

 

I would have treated you right

after I broke my neck

and became paralyzed.

But, you wanted a lover in bed

more than a lover of who you are.

 

Oh, how could I have been so wrong.

I pray to god, saying softly in my prayers

baby, come back we can blame it all on God.

 

It just wasn’t meant to be.

 

I write poetry,

you are in many of my poems,

but, you are unnamed.

 

I can dream about you

so please baby come back

there was something in everything

about you.

Dear Victor. This is very nice poem with interesting sense. I mean how it goes the tone here. The poem is written in simple way, with directly easy words, clear imageries and expressions. And most of the time that kind of poems, written like that, are taking some not attractive tone. But here in this poem, there is much sense of all what is written and what the poem expressed.

 

I felt that sad sound of this poem, what is used in many poems from yours. Slowly, line by line , the poem makes a good sad composition, nostalgic, but somewhere it can be seen some peace too. I don't know , but I felt, and that is not usual peace in some sad and poem what hurts.

 

Thanks for sharing, Vic.

 

I am glad to read from you

Hi Victor,

 

I like this kind of directness:

... and the local references:

And while I can relate to this part, when it comes to many of my own poems --

I write poetry,

you are in many of my poems,

but, you are unnamed,

I always seem to find myself saying something along these lines, too:

Please come back.

I was wrong

and you were right.
