Yesterday I felt rather nostalgic (being a Sunday here in Australia) and on days like that I can express my feelings in writing so much better.  I wrote a poem…actually published it and went back to edit it later.  I’ve had a slow internet connection the whole day and used the wireless connection instead.  For some unknown reason everything failed and I lost all that I wrote before!!  Not even a saved draft.  Don’t you just hate that?  From now on I’ll be making damn sure everything is duplicated!  So herewith, another attemp…..which will never be the same as yesterdays but with the same spirit.

As I close my eyes and think of you

The beating of my heart is real

I just so want to be with you


The way we talk and laugh

The sound of your voice within

I just so want to be with you


I feel the wetness on my cheeks

As I long for you to hold me tight

I just so want to be with you


No matter how long it takes

Or how many tears it makes

I just so want to be with you

  13. Last year, I experience my greatest nightmare as a writer when my computer bugged down from certain virus and I was not able to recover all my files. It’s a good thing most of my writings are posted on-line now, but a back up storage would still be the best to keep our files safe.

    I wrote a poem from that lost: “White and Blue”


    I believe the poem connects well to your delimma expressed in your forewords.

    The poem is tinged with longing, and love is written all over, well expressed. Sometimes, love comes when we stop chasing it.

    I wish you well.

  14. Lovely poem, so full of longing. I know how that kind of love must be, where you long so hard for someone.
