I’ve slowly been going through odds bits and pieces and found a couple of poems that I have written when I was younger. I’m kicking myself for not keeping copies of all of my poems I have written over time as there were many and all with significance.
I pledge as a promise to myself that poetry is something I will revisit again…
The one I am about to share with you was for an old love. It’s quite interesting looking at the words I have used and the motions I have questioned. It would be interesting to see how I would write about a love today…if I were in love.
I like to give as it makes me feel good
I like to love the way everyone should.
I like to feel alive and go with the flowI like to be wild when I can and let myself go.
I’d like to know the world’s a safe place
and keep a smile without saving face.
I’d like to see happiness with all around
while keeping both feet on the ground.
I’d like to feel love, the way I give out
I’d like to feel respected and feel no doubt.I’d like to feel secure with the world and myself
while feeling loved and full of wealth.
I’d like to know that I can trust
I’d like to communicate as that’s a must.
I’d like to associate with all of his lifeI’d like to feel all of this without having to be his wife.
I’d like him to know this and to understand
and to know it’s not that bad for a woman to love a man.
I’d like ot be happy just happy with me
while being happy with him and for him to love thee.
