One Day……

 

One day I will grow into who I’ll become,

A childhood that’s moulded and shaped by the sway,

The belief in the future and the good things to come,

Yes, I’ll know who I am from that very first day.

 

One day I will know what it is to be loved,

To be held and be kissed like the storybooks say,

To be touched and be wanted, a love that is lived,

Yes, I’ll know what it is to be loved for a day.

 

One day I will know what it is to be whole,

To no longer be searching for the part that’s astray,

To join with another and share the one soul,

Yes, I’ll know what it is to be whole for a day.

 

One day I will know what it is to be old,

To only have memories to watch and replay,

Of echoes and shadows and things I can’t hold,

Yes, I’ll know I had love once, if just for a day.

  1. What an adorable testament to me or in this case you melady 🙂
    One day I will grow into who I’ll become…steadily but slowly the years sneak up on us all and yes, we do grow into who we become. It takes a life time to achieve this. Looking back in years we left behind, we see and appreciate all the loves along the way. Perhaps its been the one, or two even three; in the romance of life and us with our beau.
    One day we will look back and acknowledge we did love, even if for just one day. Wow! Helen, I love this so much! One day is my everyday of life, at least I want to believe this with all my heart. I choose to see all my love(s) in this light, oh…who knows, perhaps it’s all in my head but still, I have had one day everyday for all my life.

    As for the wholeness,echoes and replays, we will just have to wait till then; who knows what yonder holds for man.
    Your poems always make me smile, I may read you completely different from your intent, perhaps my subconscious has a need to have a crutch 🙂
