alone with my thoughts

 

i start to cry   not really cry   but sad   tears   real enough

come   and marketa

who has her head on my shoulder   says   what's wrong

 

i feel silly   but say   i miss you

 

miss me    

 

yes   i say   i miss you   one lifetime isn't enough   someday you won't be

and i won't be   and we won't be   and

i miss you   and it makes me sad      i want you forever

 

she is quiet a while   i feel her drift off   her hand on mine  

 

i do feel like crying   but smile a little   and feel the rise

and fall of her chest   and turn to face her so i might breathe in her warm breath 

                                                         

i try to be philosophical   but no saving thoughts come 

one lifetime isn't enough   there seems to be no way around it

 

one lifetime isn't enough  

and there is nothing i can do but love her   and miss her   and i do

I shed a tear for everyone that has loved. Faced with infinity we are all losers.

So much yearning. So much wishing. And, yes, one life time is not enough--so true.

Longing, nostalgia, it's all there beautifully written, but it's the line "one lifetime isn't enough" that got me and made me "feel" the poetry.

So much wishing and so much wanting and so much love and happiness. We all want happy moments to last forever. I have been in that position many times. But everything changes. All that remains are the memories. I hope you can make it last forever.
This poem is so full of wishes. You made me sad for all I have lost in my life, and made me want to enjoy more what I have at this moment because it too will pass. Sorry about the sad reply.
The poem is so beautiful. Enjoy every minute.*

I cherish the imagery of the couplet where you speak of breathing in her warm breath. On the whole, a really beautiful and tender poem, despite, or perhaps because of, its ineluctable sadness.
