Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Lo Que Queda De Mi
Years have passed and all that's left
Was once a child today GOD kept
Inside of me much older too
who wished upon the stars for you

He dreamed of love and much to do
Of all the things spoken of too
Where trips to foreign lands would come
To wayward me once thought was done

My brown eyes teared before we met
Wondered they did if we misled
The innocence that came to the door
The love needed that we searched for

You came like sunshine in the rain
Bringing new life to the floods of pain
That drowned more than the life in one
who wished for better days to come

Winters cold would pale the scars
That left their mark where countless bars
Became my place of refuge then
When younger days were spent in them

Hugged the counter where drinks were served
To soak a conscience where thrown were curves
Striking out the best of us
Where lost was all along, with trust

Hard to rebound and become
Fall again in love with one
When now all there is whats left of us
Who missed the boat and too the bus

Yet in this heart that's aged is still
A chance to live love unfulfilled
Where all that's left of better days
With one who hopes, you came to stay

Love till nothing's left of me
Hold to promise, promised to thee
With one last breath that's drawn of you
I'll leave whats left of us, this too
