Lost Love by Gary R. Hess

This poem, like many of my earlier writings, is very amateurish and possibly even doggerel; however, that doesn't change what it meant to me. The love I had and lost at this point in life had a huge impact on me emotionally, spiritually, and culturally.

Lost Love

I loved you more than I have ever known
Those starry eyes
Those tender lips
You made my heart melt
Then boil into a roaring fire
I now know
What my eyes could not see
You are the only one that is for me
Many nights those tears flew
Being myself without anyone
Anyone to care about the thoughts
Looking at the sky and knowing
Many mistakes I had
Many mistakes I have had
