Meet Me

You told me of your dreams And I told you everything About joy and hurt and love gone dim You only smiled and pulled me near I still love that you were the one Who could chase away my fear

Meet Me is a poem written and shared by Kelli J. Gavin to The Ugly Writers under the theme Love for the month of May.

 

Meet Me

 

 

Fondly I remember
When you and I would meet
Both walking from our homes
To somewhere in between
The woods always provided shelter
From the hot summer sun
And from the wind that howled
But I knew we would always have fun

Fondly I remember
When you and I would meet
Face to face each morning
That bench providing a seat
The hours quickly passed us by
As we spoke of everything
And then of nothing at all
Once our lips would meet

Fondly I remember
When you and I would meet
You told me of your dreams
And I told you everything
About joy and hurt and love gone dim
You only smiled and pulled me near
I still love that you were the one
Who could chase away my fear

Fondly I remember
When you and I would meet
Those days that I treasured
Still seem to be so sweet
You moved away yet here I am
Still waiting for you to take a seat
I will always miss you
And wish that we could meet
