I hold close to me the flame we lit

As all those years passed apart

As the winds of life did blow

My love became like glass wrapped round it

And I carefully protected the sacred glow

Though we’ve set ourselves free to wander

I know that the light of our love

It was far too dear to squander

Lost in a world of shadowy darkness

I’ve lost my way, lost my senses

Been hollowed by the starkness

Still the light of what once was dances bright

Illuminating dreams and remembering

That such a beautiful prize is worth the fight

So do not begrudge me this old flame

With it I remember what it can be to fully love

Tenderly, peacefully, and passionately untamed...Sigh!

Love is never what we expect it to be like...and its hardly in the places we look either. Love is quite a strange thing!

@Keshi
and its hardly in the places we look either.***I agree...

that's the sheer beauty and misery of love... it can show u heaven and hell...

but in the end, when we walk away... all that matters is the feeling it leaves us with... some can't see beyond the pain and some (as the lines in the poem speak) take away the best from it...

and still see hope in togetherness against the odds...

*sigh*

from my own experiences..i have come to this...what has to last will last..and what is not meant to last.wont..there is only so much one can do....
i have had those feelings for someone...but now i feel it was pointless....coz he dint care ...
so why should should i care....memories leave us with unbearable pain sometimes...atleast it did to me...so chose to forget it all...and start life afresh.....
