"Don't gain the world and lose your soul....wisdom is better than silver or gold."

"You can always close a book, but you can never close the mind of a writer."

It was at that place by the sea,
that I met him and he met me.
And the sun always shone on the sand
as we ran together hand in hand.

It was at that place by the sea
that I left him and he left me.
Because we were meant to sail away
until we would meet again someday

It was at that time when I missed the sea
that I thought of him and he thought of me.
And I closed my eyes and saw the time
when I was his and he was mine.

It was at that second when I smelled the sea
that I missed him and he missed me.
Because even though we were miles apart
I could always feel him in my heart.

It was at that minute when I heard the sea
that I longed for him and he longed for me.
So I fell to the ground and gravely cried
that we would end up side by side.

It was at that time when I saw the sea
that I called for him and he called for me.
So I set out on my quest to find
my lover I had left behind.

It was at that place by the sea
that I saw him and he saw me.
And when I was finally in his hold,
all our love began to unfold.

It was at that place by the sea
that I loved him and he loved me.
Our love was pure, our heart was one
and we lived together in the land of the sun.

It was at that place by the sea
that we had met our destiny.
And together we lived on happily
loving each other for eternity.

This piece actually isn't written about any particular guy in my life. I wrote it to express how it feels to leave someone behind, then the feelings of being reunited. Enjoy :) oh and please comment

i really love this! it's sweet, but not in a sappy "oh-my-gosh-i'm-desperately-in-love-with-you" way. i could visualize everything that was going on. keep it up :)

That was beautiful, and it does almost reach that explanation of reuniting again. I loved it.

"If I could be any part of you,
I'd be your tears;
To be conceived in your heart,
Born in your eyes,
Live on your cheeks,
And die on your lips."

Out of all your poems I've read so far, I think this is my favorite. Beautiful. Definitely beautiful. I love that it tells a story and doesn't lose the emotion. <3

Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it. Because nobody else will. Like when someone comes into your life and half of you says you're nowhere near ready, but the other half says: make him yours forever.

this is a really good poem. i could really imagine the feelings and the images coming from this poem. i felt that the poem was speaking to me, because i've been in that situation, so like i said, i really enjoyed the poem. :) keep up with the amazing writing, and thank you for the comment! :)
