On Southern Grass.
As I lie upon this southern grass
There is sorrow in my heart
For one that was so dear to me
Has taken to depart
I look into the distant sky
So far it clouds my eyes
And I feel my throat constricting
As in my heart it questions why
And yet there is a calmness
In this serenity of blue
As memories wash over me
Like early morning dew
You filled my heart with laughter
Filled my soul with acts of joy
I blushed when you first kissed me
When I was nothing but a boy
We were as one in forest glades
Held hands beneath the sun
We laughed at chasing shadows
For our lives had just begun
So now I'll wipe away the tears
As on southern grass I lie
And the only thing I will regret
I never got to say goodbye.
Author's Notes:
For a childhood sweetheart who in later years still remained firm friends.

The title drew me in because I'm a southern girl, but this is so loving, it touched my heart.

Be well,

You write of feelings we can all identify with, which in my opinion is what poetry is about.....conveying emotion and eliciting an emotional response in return.  Sorry for your loss. jp

It is so lovely that you have remained very good friends. I hope that it will remain so for you. It is sad when a realtionship ends but so much better when you can still be such close friends


A wonderful poem

Letting go is the most difficult heart ached for you as I read this. It's beautiful, my friend...and I know that, even though you didn't get to say goodbye, she knew you cared. Maybe you didn't get to say good bye because she will always remain with you. From this write, I'd say she'll always be a part of you. After all, you shared a lot of firsts can she not be with you?

Hugs my friend...and smile with memories...don't shed tears of regret.

Sir Graham,
 Oh< I just don't know what to say... This tugs at my heart so much.. I know how you must be feelings.. we never forget our first love how it lingers always in our mind and heart...

 My first boy friend died a couple of months ago and it is a loss so painful.. But I at least saw him several times before he was taken from me
.. After all theses years we never forgot that love we tears fall.
He told me seveal times.."India ..I still love you after all theses years"
 Hugs and love my dear friend  always ~ Scarlett
