this time

English: True Love Couple

English: True Love Couple (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

if only this time
in the gentle pond of her mind
she could hear my thoughts
as if spoken tenderly and clearly
floating along like a water lily
as we sit close despite the distance
she will touch the truth
like rippling waves
that seem to say
I will always love her
so very dearly

lost years are all but forgotten
with my many mistakes
now mere fading memories
left behind in the past
like fallen trees rotting in a forest
and the future is another story
yet to be told in an unopened book
with a custom leather binding
which perhaps, this time
hides a plot of true love
finally found at last

      Thank you. I think this was one of those ones that sat in the draft folder for some time being revised and waiting for a day when I just wanted to post something. πŸ™‚

      Thank you!

      It’s funny how poems can evolve. I was once at lunch with a group of people and sitting across from a girl that I really liked. Out of the blue, she answered a question that I was thinking but hadn’t spoken out loud. Or was it the other way around? I don’t remember. It was a long time ago. Anyway, whoever answered swore they heard the question, but nobody else at the table did. Strange story, I know. Early versions of this poem focused more on that event and a wish to communicate by thoughts, but in this final form only a fragment of that remains.

      I’m glad, now, that this poem turned out sweet. I was torn for some time about ending this poem on a optimistic note or not. The last revision prior to the final revision that was posted had the title as “this time, or not” and ended with “or perhaps not”. πŸ™‚
