Until We Meet Again

We were young
we were wild
we were free.
We were hippies
we were kids
who didn’t know
our love
would not always be.
We loved
and we fought
then….
we went separate ways
but we had three children
who got lost in our maze.
People can judge
and guess who’s to blame
but it was me and it was you
who held our love in the flame.
Pushing the line
until it was erased
I stopped running
you no longer chased.
We burnt our love
like a steak forgotton
on a hot charcoal grill.
We said goodbye
but we also said
I love you
I always will.
The last time
I saw you
Our lips touched
with sadness
not passion.
One last time
I held your unfamiliar
pain wracked body close.
You said
you’ll always be mine.
I shook my head no
but my tears said yes.
Tears fell from our eyes
as I walked out the door.
Yes big boys do cry
but now my first love
you’ll cry no more.

        1. I know I should say more but my mind is stunned right now by the emotions in the poetry. My ex-husband died this past week and it slapped me silly. I wasn’t expecting it. I expected the death but I didn’t know I would hurt. It has been 35 years since we parted ways.

          1. Wow I’m sorry for your loss. It’s hard to even imagine the feelings. The time apart doesn’t negate the time you spent together and for that alone I’m sure adds to your mourning. It’s really sad how life works like that. This week I lost a family member as well so I understand the reeling emotions
