Do You Remember Me?

Do you remember me
The tenderness we shared
A child, I slept between your arms
And felt your warm breath upon my brow

Our secret love was a chance meeting
That carved a sweet memory deep within my soul
We could blame the rain, the loneliness
If it were not for recognizing each other,
not quite as strangers, from the past

Do you remember me?
Your blue eyes melted all my misery
Your veiled gaze floated me out of my skin
I was adrift in a warm salty sea
To horizons I have never been

Do you remember me? My brain
Pulsating like soldering volcano lava
I never knew your name
But your simple touch drove me insanity

I know I did enchant you as you did me
So Tell me why you left
You must have felt as deeply
I can’t believe that you did not

Was it the hand of destiny
That we had to part
Or was I a student of your charms
A fleeting passing moment…….
I think not.


Rainer Maria Rilke
For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.

Wow, very intimate and romantic poem. Also a bit melancholy but who can't relate to love lost!

Vicky: Love and life is all melancholy
If we sit thinking about it we'd all cry an ocean :)

Voegtli said...

Yes, the poem is lovely.

Pipilotti Rist is not. She mest up our National Fair 2001. Which was a fiasco anyway. Not only because of her.
