It has been a long, long time

 

 

It has been a long long time

since I have seen you my friend.

 

Don't you know you are my best friend

in the whole wide world.

 

The day we met you were in my dreams.

I thought of you as the goddess of love.

You are the roman goddess of love named Elizabeth.

 

I took for granted that you

just don't care.

It is important to me to know

you are free.

 

Think of me, you know I think of you

you know I should.

 

The stars shine on us at night

as we walk along the shore of the ocean.

A Celestial Storm is brewing off the coast.

The lightning and thunder we do hear and see

wants me to take care of you my lover.

But in actuallity it is you who takes

care of me.

 

It's has been a long long time

since we made love.

That was lifetimes ago it seems.

 

I saw your spirit as a tiny baby.

You were being born again.

I heard you say I love you

in the spirit world.

 

My heart leapt after you then.

Don't you know I would take you

to other worlds if I could.

 

Maybe I shouldn't think of you

as much as I do.

But it is important to me

for you to know that I love you so.

 

As the tears fall from my eyes

are grown men allowed to cry.

 

I saw the light in your eyes

in my head,

in my head I know these

things are true.

I have feelings for you.

 

I want you to know this

but who are you to understand me.

I believe in reinccarnation

but many Christians do not.

 

They believe the bible

instead of listening to God

speak to them in their eternal dreams.

 

I know something is wrong

when you gazed up at me

and saw my personality in your wake.

I figured out that I should sing you a song

because I have feelings for you

because I saw the light of your spirit

shine in the whole world

as they saw the light coming from you.

 

We were dressed in our best

doesn't it seem we have been there before.

In my eyes, in my eyes

I have seen you bathing before.

It was all good because I loved you even more.

 

Yes it is you that we walked along the shore

all alone

when I saw the light in your eyes and I knew for sure

you were created by intelligent design to be with me.

These lines are lovely:

Think of me, you know I think of you

you know I should ...

 

I have feelings for you ...

 

Yes it is you that we walked along the shore

all alone

when I saw the light in your eyes and I knew for sure

you were created by intelligent design to be with me.

I like how you address Elizabeth within the body of the poem, without a direct dedication after the title.

My dear Victor, very good poem. It's so musical and very emotional. It reminds me of the old literature , the classicism. I already told you how much I love those poems, and you include the names, - Elizabeth , in very good moments in the poems. And because it's talking almost always about same name, it gives much more power and lyrical apostrophe on your poetry.

 

I love this one. And here I can say that is all compact , and here I can't say that if this was shorter it would be stronger icon_smile.gif This is wonderful long poem, what could be even more longer. It have wonderful sense and way.

 

I like the repetitions

I saw the light in your eyes

in my head,

in my head
I know these

things are true.

I have feelings for you.

 

very poetical poem Victor.

 

Thank you for sharing
