Gods Valley

From first moments we were together, something grew from deep inside
We broke the rules but did it matter?, just knew our Love we could not hide
Like a breeze in early summer, I blew those cobwebs from your mind
We loved and loved like no tomorrow, our Hearts cried out 'Please God, more time..?'

We stole so many precious moments, that I'll remember 'till I die
When I am old and life is ending, those memories will moist my eye
Words can't say how much I love you, my tears that fell since your love died
My Heart now broken, a thousand pieces, the many nights I've lain and cried

Don't you remember?, we lay together, the time I first gave you my seed
You wanted 'nothing there' between us, just 'me' inside so great your need
Like footprints on a sandy beach, your Love has now been washed away
Those memories of you and me, now gone, belong to yesterday
I recall so very well, those things you came and said to me
You begged that I would never leave, you said that we would always 'be'
What was it caused your Love to die?, did once cascade, a waterfall
Now just a trickle coming down, and in between us now, a wall

We thought our Love would have no ending, the times you said 'We'll never part'
I did believe all what you told me, as your knife plunged through my Heart

My darling, I will always love you, time can't erase all what I feel
Those memories of us together, my broken Heart can never heal
Death I know can only release me and free me from this mountain of pain
I'll then walk through into Gods Valley and there be happy, once more, again

So enjoy your 'lost love' now with 'him', that latent love I helped you find
I'll wait in Gods Valley for 'your turn' my darling, then there at last, you'll truly be mine
I'll wait for you there by a stream near a meadow, for the Angels to bring you along to me
Then we'll fly off together into the Heavens, and be as one, for Eternity..

    Memories speak louder than presence. It pains to lose what could have been. There's always a place called Forward. Nothing has come to stay, than Truth.

    Good thinking, great inking!

    This is such a heartfelt yet sad piece with fluency throughout. Tugged at the heartstrings and captivated me from start to finish.

    Hello Peter,

    I read this the other day on my phone. It is such a sad piece of love poetry that I am sure most people can relate to. I know I can.

    Helping someone back to a point where they can trust men again only to loose them because now they don't need you is probably the worst way to loose a lover. Worse than death?

    A poem well written and coming from a place of raw experience.

    Take care Peter and thank you for sharing.

      Thanks for your nice comments Michael. Yes, as I recall it does seem a 'fate worse than death' when almost overnight, one is discarded as 'irrelevant', and is left with huge feelings of Love that then has to be somehow dissipated on ones own, often taking several years to erase all those once happy shared memories.
      It's a shame women like that don't come with a health warning. Lol!

      It's an old poem which I wrote long time back. Thought I should give it an airing. Lol!
