I left,
Taken from your waiting arms,
Unaware that they were waiting for me.
We belonged to each other, once...
I had no idea you still cared,
Let alone loved me, even longed for me.

You still love me?

I've changed since we last met.
Life makes sense, as do I.
I'd like to think I'm wiser now,
But to say so would destroy that.

I've looked over everything,
vanquished beliefs, endorsed ideas.
So many things have disappeared, yet
You always remained constant.

What could I possibly have done in life
To deserve such love as this?

I may never know.

'He who knows others is learned. He who knows himself is wise.'
-Lao Tzu

'Tomorrow will take us away,
Far from home--
No one will ever know our names,
But the bards' songs will remain.
Tomorrow, all will be known,
And You're not alone,
So don't be afraid
In the dark and cold
'Cause the bards' songs will remain.
They all will remain
In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind....
Come close Your eyes;
You can see them, too.'
Blind Guardian,
The Bard's Song: Into the Forest

I liked your poem a lot. It really allows the reader to get a first hand view of questioning love.

Good work.
