We met at a gathering


We met at a gathering
I knew her not till then
The wrinkles on her face
No secret of her age
Her eyes bright with youth
Remembering years before
A boy of seventeen
And a table just for two

She looks into my eyes
They try not to say
These years we’ve been waiting
For someone just like you
The gathering abruptly ended
And you were swept away
Leaving me another memory
And a table just for two

"The gathering abruptly ended
And you were swept away
Leaving me another memory
And a table just for two."

I really liked this work especially the last lines
for we all have those reflections of a table
for two and the times we can't have them.

Nicely done.

Jack! what a treat! A poem so tender & filled with love! I am just returning to driving & getting to the library & online after some surgery, and what a nice welcome back: a poem by you!!
I am doing well...early detection is KEY! Stage One, NO chemo/NO radiation! I have been blessed! Now to try to put into words my gratefulness to my partner/caregiver! He has been tremendously supportive & selfless. I would love to pen a poem of thanks for Valentine's Day...I hope the words come.

I'm going through a similar thing with a very close relative of mine - it's not easy but if you have the strength of another it sure makes a difference.

I hope you will continue to be well LB

As always you write straight from the heart, I do tend to nip in and out of the poetry section and sometimes I don't even leave a comment, but will do so in future.

This was a delight to read, and you put so much of yourself into your writing - I know that much for sure.
