    I once said
    I knew the feel of never
    And I do
    Because I never
    Want to leave you

    I once said
    You were a lifeless shell
    A hulk of man
    But you breathe life into me
    As I wrap around your frame

    I once said
    I was not ‘in love’ with you
    But what I meant
    Is with all that we’ve been through
    We just transcend into something higher

    I once said
    I would live better days without you
    But without you I would be lost in darkness
    And betrayed by sunrise
    For only your light can shine on my days

    I once said
    I was one
    But I am one of two
    With a part of you within me
    That can not be denied

    Sort of like taking the bitter with the sweet, sometimes it's the sweetness that has the strongest flavor. Lovely write.

    Cindy,

    A most interesting poetic scenario
    perceptions of once can and do unfold to forever and
    to never

    enjoyable read....

    Peace and Blessings
