POETRY READING: A Love Lost, by Tommy Anderson


Well, my dear we now must be apart
But in my mind at least we are together
We are close in my mind and heart
That is something that I cannot close
Should I? I don’t know? Do I want to?
No, because they my most pleasant memories
The help me weather a terrible storm
Reality is harsh, but it doesn’t diminish my feelings
Love will always remain in me till the end of my days
I built a house around my heart when you came around

It was cozy and a warm shelter
But it was made of glass and that was fragile
In a terrible storm it was shattered
Will love enter my heart again? Don’t know?
That is for God to determine not me
Though life changes and rearranges
Land changes and mountains may disappear
My love for you will always be there
Someday you may turn around to see if it still exists
If that day does ever happen, you will see me
I’ll be standing somewhere waiting for you
I’m a foolish old man now
But still dreaming like a teen
Reality is here but I don’t want it
So all I have is my dreams
