Love Poem # 278
When I Look Back
When I look back
On the dreams I left behind,
Buried there in all my thoughts
It is you I always find.
I saw you then as I see you now
Through love's impassioned blindness,
A heart so fashioned there within
Filled with love and kindness.
How often has my heart declared
With anguish, for my words are few,
That the wind shall blow a little longer,
To keep me here with you.
Sweeter still are the pains of love.
The bonds of love grow stronger,
Even after the moonlight has gone to sleep,
I shall always love you longer.
No other can stir my heart so deep,
Or thrill me through and through,
And in my dreams, there will never be
No other love but you.
When I look back to times gone by
There is one sure thing I know
It is you my love, who stole my heart
Fifty years ago.
