A Thousand Times

I wrote this poem back in 2005... it was written as a celebration poem for my ex-wife when she passed her five year anniversary date for being cancer free. It was a happy day for me... I thought our lives would begin again... sadly, that "free" date made me a prisoner.

This poem is also the first time a poem of mine was made into a song...

A Thousand Times

A 1,000 times, I dreamed of you.
Dreams of long walks,
Dreams of far-away places,
Being one, exploring together.

A 1,000 times I kissed you.
First thing in the morning,
Last thing at night,
Many times in between.

A 1,000 times we went out.
Simple dates, always special,
Weekend getaways,
Never boring, always fresh.

A 1,000 times we were surprized.
By gifts we gave,
The words we said,
The stories we shared.

A 1,000 times I smiled.
Dancing a night away,
Holding hands,
Or going on a road trip.

A 1,000 times we cheered.
With touchdowns,
Baskets scored,
And grade school musicals.

A 1,000 times I lived in fear.
Laying in hospital beds,
IV's filled with chemo drugs,
Broken from a car crash.

A 1,000 times we made love.
Always special and unique,
Memories of a touch, a kiss,
Make my dreams so sweet.

A 1,000 times we dreamed of a future.
No burdens or obligations,
Simple joys done together,
Growing old, as one.

A 1,000 times, in a 1,000 poems, never written.
I'm grateful, to call you, my own.
Not to possess or control,
But to caress and share our souls.

It is sad to see this video... I love the song but what I dreamed of being a new future was the beginning of the end... anyway... I hope you enjoy the song
