Magic Dust [beautiful poem and picture]

Had I only known, how you felt that day…
But you never told me, and I walked away.
I was just a child, you were more mature
Everything was foggy, all I saw was blur.

You should have known better, you should have expressed
How you felt about me, and we’d have ran west.
I was way too young, I had crazy dreams
I took life for granted, this is how it seems.

I thought you made plans for a life of joy
Far away from me and my stupid toy.
Yes, it is still there, but with eyes all cold
The brown bear you gave me, with the love untold.

And the little bottle, with the “magic dust”
I now get your words: “break it if you must”.
So I did, in anger, just the second day
When you smiled in sorrow and I smashed that tray.

Then there was silence and I could have sworn
That there was a tear, in your heart a thorn.
In my foolish pride, as I turned away
I couldn’t even hear your sweet “darling, stay…”

Now it is so late, all these years have passed
Darling please forgive me, forget me if you must.
But I never will, you’ll be in my heart
Till the end of time, we won’t be apart.

Even if you live a lifetime away
Every night I dream you and I always pray.
I pray you are loved and you always win
I pray you are happy, like we should have been.

    This is so beautiful, and expressed with such deep feeling, that it made me go shivery down my spine … it’s as though the words were written for me, yet I know they weren’t. When poetry can bring such a profound effect it is something special.

    It is a life story very well poetically expressed with sad end. Why do people leave us after showing their love and devotion ?

    Amazing. The words are so close to the feeling that I thought that was about my past, but instead it is yours. There is so much heart felt love in the poem that it made my heart feel sad for a bit. Giulia, Such BEAUTIFUL words you have written here…..
