IF ONLY FOR AWHILE

By Charles Robert Lindholm
THINKING OF DREAMS AND MEMORIES IN FRONT OF A FIRE

I Often Wonder
Wistfully,
Why It Had To Be
The Way It Was

A Chance Meeting
A Sudden Attraction
And Passions
That Set Off
My Heart’s Seismograph

She Brushed
Through My Life
As A Flaming Comet
In My Summer Sky
COMET IN A MIDNIGHT SKY

But In Those Brief
Moments Of Time
We Shared Together
She Filled
My Heart And Soul
With An Indescribable
Ecstasy
YOU COULD NEVER SAY NO B

I Came To Know
Of Heaven,
And The Rush Of Oneness
And The Fire And Fury
From Two Bodies
Melded Into One

Untitled
From Her
I Learned Of Love
And The Bonding
Of Two Souls
As One
MY WHISPERED WISHES - FULL SIZE

She Was Mine
For A Few Fleeting
Moments In A Summer
Of Laughter And Joy
With  Nights Of Loving
And Passion,
If Only For Awhile
SHE HAD A SHY TONGUE

And When I See
A Shooting Star
In A Midnight Sky
I Think Of Her
SHOOTING STAR - 2

She’s Still Mine
In My Dreams And
In The Memories I Keep
In My Heart
I WONDER WISTFULLY

Inspired By A Comment On My Poem – “A Shooting Star” from “Grateful Single Mom” And My Response.

GSM: “Very nice…She comes in but wasn’t meant to stay….”

TRP: Yes, and so often the focus is the loss instead of the amazing love, joy and happiness we were blessed with, if only for awhile!!
