In another lifetime

The look in your eyes
tells me all
I know you couldn’t say
I know you wouldn’t say

But I can see the love there
and I can see the pain

Though today
I love you my way,
If only I could live again -

to match your love
to wipe the pain

Only for the look in your eyes.

  4. Thanks Linda.
    This poem is not really about mistakes. At times we might care for a person yet cannot return the love they hold for us, to the full extent. This poem is written in that context.

  6. We all have our own kind of loving! And it's quite sad when another's need somehow doesn't quite match what we can give! So very beautifully written!
