One Dream

I have looked for years

And I have yet to find you

They say there is only one

But what about a second chance

I had my one and only already

But now he is gone

So I continue to search

High and low and in-between

Hoping to someday find you

The one who will stand by me

The one who will complete me

The one who will love me endlessly

I know the odds are against me

But I can’t help but dream

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – July 31

I am finally back to taking part in Fandango’s Friday Flashback (FFF)… giving a chance for new people to see old posts and remind loyal readers of days gone by. This poem was original posted here as a response to a daily prompt from Fandango of the word “moment”… I hope you enjoy it!

The moment I said hello
My world changed
When your attention
Your touch
Your taste
All drew me in
Somehow we just fit
And every moment was alive

I can’t say why it ended
Sometimes these things just do
But it left me with
Insatiable memories
Me still wanting you

I’ll settle for the next best thing
A friendship built on love
That never went away
But some days I still wonder
Can we get a second chance

A chance to once again
Rekindle what might have been
With your attention
Your touch
Your taste
All that drew me in
That night so long ago
When I first said hello

Give In A Little

When I first saw the word for the day I instantly thought of Diamond Rio’s Meet In The Middle. And yes, it was obviously made in the 80’s.  Enjoy the video then take a look at the poem I came up with…

You moved away

I cried night and day

You said you’d call

That was last fall

But now you’ve returned

And your single I’ve learned

So if I give some space

Will you come to my place

Giving in a little bit

Our love may still fit

Meet me halfway

I want you to stay

Lean on me just a little

We can meet in the middle

Our love is still hot

Don’t tell me it’s not

With an embrace and a kiss

We will be in pure bliss

Chosen One

Do you believe

We are given

Only one chance at love?

Is there just a chosen one

That you are destined

To be with forever?

Or can you find

A second chance

To feel happiness again?

He was my chosen one

But he ripped us apart.

Now there is an urging,

A need for another.

How do I find the strength

To risk the hurt

Of a love that may be wrong;

To risk my heart

On a love that may be right?

I have to believe

The risk is worth the reward

Of a second chance love.
