I Bet You Smile when You Hear My Name

by Thomas K. Hunt

I'm searching for thoughts that live in my mind
I just caught a buzz and and now I'm try to catch rhymes
Just one thought may trigger a flow
Just one line and there she blows
I never know I just let go
and I lay down only what I know

Our time was short now that time has passed
Time's not slowing down and it's moving real fast
After all this time we still feel the same
I bet you smile when you hear my name

Our time was short now that time has passed
Between you and I we share some past
I wouldn't be me if it wasn't for you
I know you can say that about me to

Years have passed
Gone in a flash
Stolen and robbed by time
I always smile when you cross my mind

We shared the begining of our time
We've permeated each others heart and mind
We shared the islands
We shared good times
Battled with our sorrows that played with our minds
We shared our lives
We shared the loss
It's all priceless but it cames with a cost
Our souls are joind and will never be lost

Our time was short now that time has passed
It's been so long since I've seen you last
I've heard stories, some that are true
I know they're true because I know you

I've missed your laughter and your smile
The present becomes the past in such a short while
Life becomes us, it just takes hold
Are we lucky if it makes us old?

We shared the begining of our time
We share each others heart and mind
We shared the islands
We shared good times
Conquered our sorrows that teased our minds
We shared our lives
We share a love
I give thanks to the lord above
For there is no other one then you
that makes me feel the love the way that you do

Our time was short now that time has passed
but in that short time we formed a love made it last
I may not have always been around but with me your love was safe and sound and it will be to the end
We'll share the islands again with our friends

I went searching for some truth tonight
and in my darkness I found a flickering light
After all this time my thoughts were of you
Missing you is something I do

Our time was short now that our time has passed
Time's not slowing down and we're not made to last
After all this time I know you feel the same
I bet you smile when you hear my name

OH Thomas! You have such a gift. I kept having to leave your poem due to all the copying and pasting of lines I did into a Word doc that I'll save with your name. So many priceless lines! You make remembering past loves a task worth doing. I love the mixture of light and dark in your piece and your comfort with both. For me, the ability to hold these together is a mark of my own maturity. Kudos to you my friend, you have done it again! Thanks.
