If we had never met

1 Comment


I found this poem today when I was cleaning out my writing desk in my bedroom.

I had forgotten all about it … it was written when I was in the army after losing my first love (awwww!!)

Anyway I changed it a little to bring it up to date and I have actually put a version of me singing it on Facebook …  not sure if the link will work but here it is, just in case .. I will warn you .. I am no singer!   If we had never met

If it doesnt work … here are the words:

If we had never met

I wouldn’t feel this way

If we had never loved

There would be nothing to say

 If we had never lain

Together in my bed

If I had never believed

The things you cried and said

If we had never met

It would be a different life

If I had treated you right

Would you have been my wife

 But life is like the tide

With the ebb and flow

Our loving time has past

And now we’ll never know.

If we had never met

I wouldn’t feel this way

If we had never loved

There would be nothing to say

Tonight I sat and watched the film Serendipity  and in it was a line that struck a chord with me

You know the Greeks didn’t write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: “Did he have passion?”.

I know I have often been guilty of not living with passion.   I get caught up with worry and stress and passion is something that passes me by in those times.

I have had a lot of trials and tribulations over the last couple of years …. and although sometimes it felt that I was going to be just swept away, somehow I managed to keep my head above water.

I learned a few lessons during the bad times .. actually .. a lot of lessons .. some good, some bad .. but every lesson is good in one way or another.

I made a few deliberate changes to my life … other changes sort of found me … or I them … true serendipity.

I truly love being a Celebrant.   I wish I had done it years ago… but .. like a typical Capricorn .. I got there in the end! *smile*

I love the calmness and the peace I have found in my life … and maybe now I should start turning the passion I have for my work into a more personal type of passion.    

When I die .. I want no obituary.   I simply want to be remembered as someone who lived with passion.     

I love life .. maybe I should take a deep breath and let it love me.
