The story……….

I remember when I first saw you playing cricket in Green Park

I remember you so clearly, handsome and all in white

I remember our first stolen kiss under those same Oak trees

I remember our souls connecting and for once me feeling free

I remember the day you left, my heart literally broke in two

I remember you were excited, your first squadron, you never knew

I remember my precious secret, carrying our little boy

I remember the love, the happiness, my peace and inner joy

I remember your first letter, I smiled and glowed all the day

I remember saying , be safe my love as I began to pray

I remember the untold feelings I had on that fateful day

I remember not understanding the letters in bold saying…M.I.A

I remember lovingly, feeling the life that grew inside of me

I remember the feeling of dread, of loss and incredible anxiety

I remember your Father and Mother rushing that night to my door

I remember the shock, the pain, waking trembling on the floor

I remember that you will always be, my one and only true love

I remember feeling cold at the service, releasing one white dove

I remember reading your beautiful letters over and over again

I remember a feeling of you calling to me, but it was a dream

I remember our son turning four, dressed most handsomely in blue

I remember a knock on the door, a feeling, rushing,
and it was you ……………..

  • You know I have never posted any of my poetry/prose in here before and after creating this image it needed something, so happy you like this one so much and yeah it does have raw emotion :-)) x
